Vuvu to Rhodes including Lehana Pass

This day is not long in distance but the route encompasses a 5km hike over the Maluti mountains with about 100m of ascent. If the wind blows or the weather is averse, it is extremely tough.
We made halfway before the wind came up and managed to keep to the lee of the mountain but about 800m from the landmark blue container, a rain squall came through freezing us. 
Such are the myriad challenges of this event but finishing down the switchbacks and flying the last 10kms into Rhodes with the wind at our backs was a fitting end to a great adventure.
