Finally, after months of scouting and planning, the Pulane to Thaba Putsoa route has an FKT! I was able to find a route up to the summit. The last 500m I came upon a shepherd who decided to lead me the rest of the way to the top. I'll be drawing the map and getting the FKT page live soon, so that people can come run it and hopefully donate to @pulanechildren centre for the FKT project. Details of website coming soon. These pics are 1: view from the top over the mountains of Lesotho. 2: summit photo with total FKT route time. 3: on the descent through a thunderstorm. 4: start and end at the PCC gate.
It's an awesome run. 25km total. Climbing all the way out from 5500' up to just a touch below 10,000'. Total vert is around 1400m, I'm hoping more when I download tracks. Tag someone who should come do this! If you run it and donate, proceeds go towards a new playground for the Pulane children.
