S-K Attempt - Josh & Michael
Tararua Forest Park
Michael Beaumont & Josh Campbell made their attempt at a Sub-24 hour S-K crossing on Tuesday, starting at 2:27am from the Putara Road end.
Unfortunately they got behind schedule early on and had to bail at Maungahuka Hut on Tuesday evening, stayed there overnight and then made their way out via Otaki Forks the following morning.
A fantastic effort nonetheless by these guys!
