I was genuinely excited to see Will set the new FKT on the Direttissima. He has a solid mountain background and having thru-hiked the AT last summer, he knew what he was capable of but wanted to push things further. The Direttissima tests your mind and body in ways hard to describe. Will dealt with sleep deprivation, swollen feet, rain storms, and a few other difficulties along the way. Thanks Will for getting on Skype and providing a great trip report.
