Are you talking about Deep Creek? I think that's the name of it -- just down from Big Bar on the Idaho side??

Don't know the actual name of it; I snapped the pic years ago and found it's location again on google earth. It is on the ID side and is just down from Big Bar, so you sound right!

What do you mean PUI??? So I got back to my maps, Yankee Fork is the name of the dredging area. Bonanza in the name of the ghost town. Your pic and my pic below don't look that different. So, while it may not have been the right location, it wasn't that different in terrain. Here's my pic:

Malad Gorge, Devils washbowl, I-84 and walking bridges.
Charlie Beaver's first descent:

It was around noon when I was in Leesburg, 2012, not 2011.

That's the wrong video, Charlie Beaver broke both ankles when he pitoned on a rock in the middle of the drop. He then had to climb out of the gorge with two broken ankles. There is a great scene in that one of them scouting it from the walking bridge while smoking cigarettes anxiously.
