Fantastic read. Glad to hear no major injuries and plenty of stoke. Will be interesting to see if anyone can repeat this in the next few years or if flows reject any further attempts.

That's crazy dedication. I like portaging more than most, but I can't imagine working through a portage like that for days on end. Makes me happy that there are people out there who put in that kind of time and effort to do new things.

Going to guess that was first and only decent, though the bolts are in....
