scorcese, copola, allen, and the coens. they got nuthin on you.

did you get helicoptered off? where's the descent?

I feel like I just read a cliff hanger that had the last 10 pages torn out. Other than the lack of descent, it was totally kick-A.

Nice video indeed. I like the sound track - what song?

Rick Sunderlage said...

kk- Metallica - Fade to Black is the song

Aaron- sorry man. I had about 10 seconds of skiing on film but didn't throw it in. This trip was all about the up.

Looking back, I wish I had busted out the camera to film us in the scrub oak at the bottom. It was an hour of pure hell. I was way too mad to film.

Ah, Metallica. I should have known since I dig Unforgiven II.

Nothing like a little Mettalica to add to the Bad Ass factor. I hear that jaunt turned out to be pretty industrial....and you guys made it look so easy. Box Elder and Timp look so small from that perspective!

So what is the time for the trip? How long to climb? Where were you? How fast to descend?

Brandon- About 4 hours up and about a 15 minute ski down followed by an hour of bush whacking (i made a wrong turn and got stuck in the wrong valley near the bottom).
