Anyone eyeing Shoshone falls on the snake? 212ft and it looks cleat from photos but don't really know. I will donate another 20 to bobs cause to break the record. That funding should be enough to get to idaho.

I think Shoshone is unrun. In real life, it looks a lot like it lands pretty hard on a rock shelf about 10 feet from the final landing. I've only been there once; I'm sure that idaho locals would have better beta than that. Also, I think that it's usually running pretty low, and you would want a lot of water to pick a line down that one.

Also, $20 is not enough to get bob to idaho. More sponsors!

Just a reminder, I'll run that big falls for $100,000 less than Bob will. Come on sponsors. I'm way cheaper.

Casino Golden will sponsor some pretty crazy and illegal stuff. They are famous for sponsoring Spiderman. Before you start haggling and lowering your price, I would check with them. They might exceed your expectations! Also, maybe Spiderman will go there with you too, and climb the rocks around the side. Who knows, he might hop in a kayak and give you a little competition.

I know shoshone is unrun because it is 26 ft taller than the record. If that's what bob is after I figured my 20 + the 80 already pledged may get him there, but I guess with a rock shelf in the landing its a no go.

I know first hand that Bob has a lot of experience with pool ledges (Broomfield Rec Center for example), so a little rock ledge shouldn't be a problem.

I'll run this with you.

Plop and drop!

I don't do falls (yet), nor am I one to say something can't be done...

But I'm not sure Shoshone Falls will ever be run. For a number of reasons, really. One: putting in would be illegal trespassing, so you'll have to deal with that. Two: It's only "in" a few weeks a year, and the tourists are pretty heavy, so that makes it even harder to run inconspicuously. However, I'm not sure it would be best to run with it is fully "in," but rather, better at moderate to low flows. Three: I'm not sure there's a clean line unless you go far right, which is where the bottom shelf exists.

I grew up in TF, and while I don't know a lot about SF as it relates to dropping in a boat, I've spent enough time there to be amazed as the sheer force of the water when it's in.

Would be amazing to watch happen.

I think you're taking this a little to serious Anchorless, the original post was about a 741 foot waterfall. I don't think anyone going off that would be worried about a trespassing ticket at the bottom.

Bob I would sponsor you but you have to collect the money in person at the base of the falls and cannot use a parachute or any similar device during the decent.
