Pit is definitely bigger than 15'. I have always thought it to be 5-7' sliding to a 25' drop. From the pic Paul is already off the lip in what I am guessing is a 14' raft, with at least 10' till touchdown. Crude estimate I know.

Sorry brahs

Didn't mean to say my waterfall was bigger than yours!! I was just saying the video doesn't do pit river any justice! If it is really 25 feet of vert than that is the shit, I love drops that slide into vert. Nice for getting your angle right! The big one on obj is max 20 feet of vert but would still be kick ass in a raft! Let's try it this year at the OBJ race, if anybody has a raft to donate that is!

P.S. I wonder what Chunderboy would have said to Rolf the extreme tuber!

entrance falls on vallecito is no more than 12 feet. unless you miss your boof and go deep.
Team Cella ran Oh be Joyfull and the first 2 drops of the North Fork Crystal. that's got to count for something. then they yard saled in the pinch drop. pretty sick attempt though. rescuing the raft from the middle of the crux was interesting.

In one of those ' No Big Names' they dropped the last falls at Agua Azul ,30 footer.

Some guy named Mike Horn hydro-speeded/river boarded a 60 ftr. in Peru ,i believe,dude's a badass ,solo circumnavigation of the globe without motors.

Where's that dude from Denver with the Puma? He wants to run class V in it, so take it to OBJ!
