After a couple days of rest, we returned for Davis’ birthday to the Big Banana section of the Alseseca. We got a five hour head start from our previous attempt and it all went reasonably well.
This time around we got to shoot some the smaller rapids. This was a great triple drop rapid with an interesting first move.
Davis Grove and Lance Reif weren’t so lucky and both blew skirts in the stompy hole at the bottom.
The next drop that we referred to as the slot drop. This looked absolutely horrible from the top.
We even had time to sit around the 40 footer for an hour discussing its runability.
A different angle of Meat Locker. “Boof into the seam and disappear.”
Here’s a couple shots from the road side section; it is good, just not epic. We got the “tour” from Adriene, so the directions we got were “interesting.”
Adriene’s directions here were, “Most people don’t run this, but just follow me.”
The always classic S-turn
Lance got to see the entire rapid up-side-down his first run, which cost him a paddle and a little pride.
Well that was a quick post, on the road heading towards the Grand Canyon.
