his is a graduate level run, unmarked with one aid station. You are almost always above 9500 feet on a rocky (but beautiful) trail. Course is out and back on 100% trails with one significant climb to 10,300 feet and multiple short steep climbs totaling 11,000 feet. The course will not be marked except by FS blazes and cairns. It is generally well-worn except in meadows. There will be lots of snow to put in your water carrier but no running water after 6 miles. Possibility of elk, mountain lions and bears (all seen in past years) and certainty of the most beautiful views imaginable of Paradise Valley and the Beartooth-Absaroka and Spanish Peaks Wilderness Areas. Cutoff is 8.5 hours at the turn-around cabin.
