Damn! that's amazing that it got caught on film! if they hadn't been breaking up that other rock I bet it would have waited to slide on traffic! Something like a big 18 wheeler would have probably set it off. nice post!

HOOOOOLLLLY CRAP MAN!!! That's a lot of big ass rocks. Cool footage, thanks for posting.

The first jumbled mess of rapids was goofy before (can't remember what they're called)....looks like the put-in will be even more interesting, to say the least.

Holy moly! A bunch of us drove up that stretch to go to NOC on the Nanty in April. I don't think I want to go that way again, that shite is scary!

I moved from bama. This is big news down there. The link below is video of the slide happening. It is a news story of the first slide, small, and while the crew was out at the site the second one happened. It's from the Alabamawhitewater forum.
