Route Setter

Creating an interesting route in not an easy job to be done. It takes a lot of energy, times and knowledge to meet the requirement of certain activities. Every individual that responsible to create a route will face a lot of challenges to achieve their greatest masterpiece. The Route Setter normally work in a small group of experienced people. Some of them prefer or comfortable to work alone.

To set a certain route, one must go through the journey to experience the route by themself. They need to feel the surround area, look with their own eyes and test the route at least one time. It’s not about enjoy the journey only, the Route Setter must record every single things that might be possible to help with their work.

There’s a lot of calculation to be done also. Calculating distance, elevation, nearest exit, terrain type and condition, hazards, transportation capability, and also carrying capacity on each involved area. The confirmation of each route to be develop or created must go through stages and possible to achieved by compiling all the information gathered and analized by other experts.

If this technical job is taken lightly, it might give a poor result that could lead to other consequence. Everybody can create a route, but not everybody can tell the whole story about the route created. At Gopeng Ultra, we hope by the end of the event you can share with us the journey of beyond ordinary that we create from our heart.
