A New FKT on Cape Wrath

Petzl team members Beth Pascall and Damian Hall completed the Cape Wrath Trail, self supported, in a fastest known time of 4 days, 9 hours and 43 minutes. The wild route through the Scottish Highlands is a challenge that calls for mental and physical endurance, a strong reserve of grit, and well-designed kit!
