When I invented GRT in December, it was inevitable that there would have to be a Half-GRT some sunny day. Well that day is today, although it was far from sunny. More like slushy.

As you may know, GRT is defined as the golden ratio of the ironman triathlon distance. Half-GRT is then simply 50% of a full GRT. That's merely a 1.2km swim, 55.6km bike and 13.0km run. Easy peasy!
|Where did that sunny spring weather suddenly go?|
|An interesting shortcut, as suggested by my trusty Suunto Ambit.|
|Climbing this required both hands, so the poles went into the backpack.|
