What's the last drop? Seen it before but I'm forgetting.

I hope to see it this roostin' again soon!

Can't wait to have my ears full of sand again! Magnetic wall at this level was totally filled in with no pocket on the left what so ever. It was a massive right pillow into a massive left pillow. Pinball wizard. I will get a pic of it up soon.

Warren going backwards at the Slot (2:02) He was pissed about trying to catch the eddy instead of straight running the drop like Paulie. My hip hurts every time I see that shot.

The money line

The best part was how soft it is at that level. Was actually pretty dam smooth backwards (with a few well placed strokes). Not quite the level to be trying to catch that eddy.

Just getting back on the buzz and saw this...was it 2 differant days that Escalante was mackin' out beyond big and brown? The day I paddled it with Warren et al (major posse at the start and only 2 of us survived to the gorge as I recall) - it was way higher then when the Scott, JBO, Gary etc. crew got spanked here and there. Magnetic Wall was beyond SIK when we took out that day. I doubt even Gary would have tried it at that level. I can't remember if I took out just above MW or a bit higher (I think just below Chevy as I would have been stuck on R-right if I had run the falls...and MW looked like suicide at that level...anyway, good to be back on the buzz and see old footy and da boys laying the smack down!

I can tell it is Spring, yo! That was a kickass day on Escalante. I had to do something after my looping swimfest at Fin. Thanks for the rope, Baird. Thank god for your good aim!

If anyone has run my line at Big Balls, I wanna compare notes. To run it again I would have taken a harder right stroke to angle my boat left a bit and maybe avoid the recirc b.s at the bottom. Okay Gar, thanks for the help, although I know you would have rather watched me struggle for a bit longer! And I would have gotten out!

There wasa alot of beauty of that day. Like boofing over Jbo while he was getting worked in a hole, and watching Gar and Seth swim out of Magnetic Wall!

Let's have a good paddling season boys and girls!

I can't wait to get in there with some juice, doesn't seem like it gets good flow to often. What flow was the embudo at during the video, looked nice and padded. Can't wait for the season to begin!

Fuck Hartle, that is some scary shit. Was that guy in a playboat? If doing that run in a playboat I think a better boof stroke is needed. Glad it turned out OK.
