Awesome Crystal Hole Run Grand Canyon

This video is from our 2009 GC run. I am shown in the silver helmet during the scout. I was following this raft, and after I saw the wheelie, I decide to skirt the hole to the right versus taking the meat. Enjoy

Thanks for sharing the video.

Was so happy my second GC run I managed to break the lateral. I missed my mark the first time and hit the hole. It sure felt like I was about that vertical when I came out of it. Was just counting my blessing that I was upright and had only popped one oar.

My days of intentionally hunting down and running holes is done with but I think I learned a lot about mental preparedness and technique in the process. Its amazing how quickly the body can appropriately act when you know not to react.
