So we think we had it tough... Just noticing how Prickles and her team climbed 600 meters in thick terrain. Overnighting tonight is pretty much on top of an 800m ridge, or just below it. Tomorrow they will descend the same amount and cross the Clark River, where I suspect they will camp and refresh! They must be buggered! I have this sneaking suspicion they are making slower progress then intended as they may not have covered 20 kilometers yet in the last two days. Can you imagine lugging a full pack through horizontal woods? Maybe some shackles would have been easier! They are probably camping in snow tonight.
Follow their progress <here>.
