    We can’t be that far from seeing the first sub 2h time on this route. Amazing effort. Memories of when the time was 2h30+ and then Dean Potter and Sean Leary beat it by a few seconds – and everyone was saying that it would probably never be done much faster. Last 3 records have been substantially faster than the last.
