Rempart Mountain Trail Run

Our trail grading: RED 9C
Distance: 9.2km
Extremeness: Sand
Location: Rempart Mountain, Tamarin, Mauritius
Joggers: Only me

Today I did another run in paradise. Kausheek dropped me at the foot of Rempart Mountain after work and I made my way past a sugar cane plantation and got lost in a forest playing with some thorns. I then found a more decent jeep track and crossed a fairly big river. The route was eventful and I saw no less than 63 Rusa Deer, monkeys and something with a long yellow tail - I've got no idea what it was. I tried a road to the North of the mountain, but after 1km it started to decent. I then took a road to the South and found a very rocky single track going up. The ladders were broken so I had to apply some of my free climbing skills. I then started to go up the side of the epic mountain! This is one of the coolest routes I have ever climbed. Unfortunately I did not have climbing equipment and called it quits at the 3rd dodgy cable bridge/ladder. What an awesome run!
