Video proves Cheeseman does not suck

There was previously some debate as to the validity of Cheeseman Canyon on this forum. Many names were called but no proof was ever presented. Well here is the proof that Cheeseman does not suck Colorado Kayaking :: Colorado's online river guide and journal for whitewater kayaking

I put this short write up and video together to not only show that this canyon is the goods but also to help highlight the access situation. It is dicey at best but you can run the canyon legally and without getting busted if you follow some simple rules and don't stop to talk to the sheriff.

If you can't read like lotsa, or you just don't want to, here is a direct link to the video

Wow! Top notch video and pics. That pin was a "caught on tape" winner for sure! Slide for life looks super fun.

You have convinced me that it doesn't suck. Too bad I suck too much to run it!

Nice! Definitely doesn't look like it sucks. Or maybe it's just sik trick photography from The Body and Ellis. Great footy boys. Great editing.
Your opinion doesn't matter when you're already biased.

Proof that with a dope soundtrack and good editing Cheeseman does not look like it sucks...

...naw...killer video...I like the connection to the guidebook...keep that coming...also props once again to Tim Kelly for his hard work over the years in Cheeseman. I think he moved away(?) but he carried a lot of weight on that issue a few years ago.

...still not going back...

We all know slides suck. But I guess the boof has come and gone too.

I guess in RC the stern squirt is trendy again. So hard to keep up with the times.
