But just as I suspected, your mothers did not approve!

Thanks for bringing that to the masses. I'm certainly not planning on seeing that run first hand anytime soon (ever!). But lawdy is it beautiful.

That's freakin awesome. I'm only disappointed you lost the upper footage and the video was so short because I didn't want to stop watching you guys making those moves. Huge props, that is quite the audacious expedition. The bar has been raised once again.

Dan, I really think that has to be the raft trip of the year. You're winning the hardness, accessibility, remoteness and steepness categories.
