To clarify: This is a ROUTE INFO task (provided we can actually see correctly). The clue Dan & Jordan are holding is clearly a route info clue. This is why we see both team members doing it. It is MONIQUE & SHAWNE who are with the pack at the wires task, and ADRIAN & DANA at 14:31. It is clearly labeled this way in the press release. Adrian & Dana are most likely way far behind. :(

I think the Route Info envelope comes after the tightrope task. The speculation is that D&J are opening up the Route info after completing the tightrope.
Note that Steve & Allie and Dan & Jordan are shown opening a Route Info task after they did the tightrope...

**SPECULATION**

After looking again at the promo, perhaps Adrian injures himself in the fall and cannot continue.  We've never seen this before, but perhaps there is a 4-hr penalty incurred which will allow Dana to complete the RB and continue racing.  This would explain why they are approximately 4 hrs behind when we see Dana on the wires.

Guessing the big gap between the first set of teams on the ropes and the second (Jodi/Shannon, Monique/Shawne) is due to bus schedules? One bus leaves Santiago and then another one 2-3 hours later?

I think that's Dana on the wires at 14:31, not the Moms.  She's wearing a black shirt.  One of the Moms (Shawne) is on the wire at 09:55.

Maybe Dana and Adrian both had to do the wires due to some new form of U-turn?

chill is obviously right! Dana is on the wire at 14:31 not the moms!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Shawne is seen in the 9:55 pic. Come on!

I'm thinking Wolf Castle after Bus Trip then Paint or is that after. RB clue to go to the tightrope (thus Joe and Heidi running through streets with RB clue in hand) get there do it, other side Route Info. Possibly they may have to do 1 more thing but I doubt it and then Pitstop!

That is Adrian on the wire so the only possible explanation is he injures himself. It has to be!

Completion of Wire:
1st: Joe and Heidi - probably
2nd: Jordan and Jeff
3rd: Dan and Jordan
4th: Steve and Allie
5th: Monique and Shawne
6th: Louie and Mike
7th-10th: Carol and Brandy, Jet and Cord, Jody and Shannon and Brent and Caite
11th: Dana and Adrian (I think)

So is one way over haul yourself along, and the other way walk on wires? Or do you have a choice? ???

It looks to me like you can get across any way you want.  If the pictures and times are correct, Dan gets the next clue before Allie, so it doesn't look like it hurt to be hanging rather than walking on top.

If you ask me...it's probably best to try it once, fall, try again, fall, continue by hanging. You'd likely exert more energy trying to climb back to a standing position than you would by pulling yourself.

Can anyone tell me whether the clue box where people are reading the route information are on the starting Artilleria (south) side or the 'ending' Villaseca (north) side? I can't find a clear open spot on the Villaseca side to fit the vantage point those pics have.

Looks like the starting side to me. On the dirt road right by where the line starts. Both the Steve & Allison pic and the Dan & Jordan pics fit that.

Got it, J-Squeeze. The Route Info is being read on the starting Artilleria side. Either the high wire is not a Roadblock, or the team member that does it has to return to the south side.





Edited to avoid confusion.

Oh! Looks like teams start on the north side and have to work their way UP instead of down the wire, starting on the Villaseca side and working their way south to the Artilleria side. What suggests this to me: the clue box with the Route Info is facing the wires, not the Ascensor Artilleria, where teams would come from if they came from the South.

So we have teams taking the Ascensor Villaseca up the north hill, a Roadblock with one team member crossing south to the Artilleria side with the partner miraculously (?) appearing across the valley, and ending with teams getting a Route Info and very likely heading down the path to the touristy Paseo 21 de Mayo and the Ascensor Artilleria to catch a taxi or whatever.

So Steve & Allison are finishing the task in that picture?

Yes, we figured that out from the EXIF data.  The pictures at the clue box are a couple of minutes after we see Dan and Allison on the wires.

And, yes, I always thought the racers were coming from the North side to the South side.

If the ocean is on the right (west) in this picture, then dont they travel south to north, when going from Villaseca to Artilleria, on the wires?

Nevermind, with the curvature of the bay, they are going north to south. The ocean is on the east in this pic!!

No. The area is on a peninsula sticking off the west coast of Chile. The water you see to the right is to the east, but it's a bay that comes around the peninsula. The ocean is to the west, but it's on the other side of the hill.

He figured it out. :lol:
