I read plenty of race reports from High Cliff (aka Toughman) triathlon from years and years ago, and am wondering if there is anyone here who completed recently (last 1-2-3 years). Could you share your experience on the swim? How is it organized, what is your advice and some tips?

I read the beginning and end is pretty shallow, and the bottom has plenty of rocks, thus, required to be very careful with walking. How are the buoys and sighting?

Thanks for any feedback!

I did high cliff last half last year and will be there this year as well. The beginning of the swim for I would say 100 yards is shallow and rocky. The swim is clockwise so buoys on the right. Make sure you have both tinted and non tinted goggles depending on if the sun is out as when you are coming into shore the sun is very bright and it is hard to sight. Its not a bad swim and you will have fun. Good luck
