Most spectacular Whitewater in Colorado?

A buddy from back east asked me what the most spectacular run(s) are in Colorado (as far as death defying video)

I was thinking of sending him Upper Death on the Colorado at high water...anyone have any great video of some big Colorado rivers or good drops?

Yule Creek, Black Canyon, pandora at high water - there is decent footage of those with some googling

Or how about that flash on that one creek that one time when we went down there with those guys?! That was awesome!

Just show up and don't expect the greatest hits and you might be pleasantly surprised. Neil Young taught me this.

That POV (at 1:20) when Norquist drops into Upper Death is crazy (and lower death). Like a fist fight with Tyson- shiite coming from all angles. I love that video.

Cool World Big South! Scary looking at it, even scarier dropping into the right line backwards... But ya that upper death and gore at 8K is scary!
