Upper Cherry part 2 featuring Alex Kilyk

Howdie Folks,

Just wanted to let people know I have a new post up on the Riot Blog featuring a former Colorado local Alex Kilyk.
Tim Robinson got some great shots of Alex running Perfect 20.

I met that guy Alex once..."Hey, guys - you're gonna get me killed, this is really scary!" was what he said. We proceeded to walk as he boofed. Although I do have Woods Creek up on him.

Oh, Dan, we renamed that drop Sketchy 30 as it's neither 20' nor perfect with undercut pockets on both sides and a funky auto-boofer half way down. Welcome to CO, land of OBJ, we'll show you perfect 23.32485ft later this year.

Yep, it was a "Sketchy 30" when I was in there too.

A little perspective for those enjoying the pics: all of the drops that are shown in the link occur in less than a mile and pretty much start right at camp. Plus there are no shots of the much-photographed Double Pothole or the ultra-mank above it. Those drops are right below Sketchy 30 and flow right into yet another tea cup-slide combo series, which finishes with Kiwi in a Pocket (35ish footer + 20 footer bonus runout) followed by the mega-mank that feeds Dead Bear (40ish footer). That's brunch for the last day of Upper Cherry. What an incredible place.
