They are about to get onto the Giant's Castle Massif. Having personally stood on top of Giant's Castle peak yesterday, I have to say they are completely crazy to do that exposed scramble while tired from a 110+km run and at night!

Looks like they are set to smash the record by about 20 hours. Epic stuff!

Final time: 41h49 flat - what an effort! Over 18 hours cut from the record!
