Hoh river trail in great shape. On Glacier - huge crevasses blocking direct route, so you need to go around rocky ridge.

Mt. Olympus in 17 hours round trip!!  Amazing

Do you know what the fastest known record is for that?

Thanks for the pictures showing the routes marked on them.  Really helps me to visualize the route.

The Mt Olympus FKT is 10 hours 12 minutes, set by Sean O'Rourke. Here's his trip report: http://www.drdirtbag.com/2015/07/01/olympus-10h12-fkt/

Maxim, 17 hours is still blisteringly fast. Awesome work and nice pictures in the report!

Really nice! Welcome to the Olympus-in-a-day club. You beat my time by several hours.

Although a couple ultra-runners have done it in 10-11 hours, they weren't doing it in mountain boots while carrying ropes and tech gear. You did it proper and safe. up.gif

Sean did that shortly after I climbed it... he's the only person I've ever climbed with who is faster then me. That guy is really fast!
