There will be NO SWEEPER and you may not have someone with you all the time during the hike, but it’s nearly impossible to get lost once you’ve completed the route over the mountain the first time.
If you’re not sure you can make the 12.25 miles, but want to try it - this is an OK event as long as you understand the following:
