This version was created in August 2014. It is the shortest route so far and veers away from the watershed in many places. The Czech ski resort Špindlerův Mlýn was chosen as the starting point, because it resembles Banff in some way. With roughly 4,100 km it is now shorter than the Great Divide and provides some reserve for future improvements. However, the elevation gain of 91,000 m is still too much compared to the Great Divide. So there is still some work to be done, especially in Spain.
