You have to love the stage names in this race. Yesterday we were heading into “Night with the Wolves” and thankfully it appears the bulk of the field has navigated this area without being bitten. They then headed into more a more motional stage of ” I will survive” trek. This stage may be a moment that they will remember long after this race. A beautiful abseil down a waterfall lined rock descent. Like all abseils once you get vertical the fear of going over the edge dissipates into the fun are scaling down a rock face. For most anyway except those holding the “death grip”. Some truly spectacular pics were taken and the teams must have surely loved this. Whilst the treks are usually where time can be lost or won and teams battle on or disintegrate this area must have surely spurred them on. They have had some swims though and with 15 C water temperatures that is very chilly. Wetsuit or perish. A most beautiful landscape to suffer and push hard in though.
