Car to Car on the Grand in 5:17!

At  the trailhead..sage advice  :-)
"Nice tights, you guys are idiots, I'm a guide, I know a lot." 

Congrads to all involved!

Jared had already done it in 7:21 last month climbing and skiing wth 2 companions that continued on the traverse.



Nathan Brown, was dropped it to 7:15:33…car-to-car. Nate went solo, used steel crampons and two ice tools, Dynafit TLT5 Performance boots, custom 160cm Igneous, and down-climbed the Chevy Couloir, as opposed to rappelling.




Then the batman team went at it.
