    Hell of a boring video, but thanks.

    Just joking around, of course, but yeah the video doesn't really capture what had to have been terrifying. Glad the guy was ok- hell of a story he'll have to tell.

    Being from upstate NY, I hate rocks, give me mud, sand or snow any day of the week.

    That buzzing in your earhole, NorCal.
    I feel you, I rode for 20years in the Northeast. All over NY/VT/CN/PA/NJ. We had names for the rocks....chicken heads, baby heads, etc.
    Oh, and roots/mud and sugar sand up the wazoo as well. Fun, but exhausting at times.
    I miss the people more than the riding. And such a short riding season too.

    I could tell he was over his head on the decent. Never descend anything you are not positive you can climb. Climbing is much tougher that descending.

    That could have gone very, very badly... glad he's OK.
