Vertical Mile on Oh-Be-Joyful

David, Chris Townshend and Jeff West got up at daylight, drove a jeep across the Slate River and up the snowy, rough 4WD road to run 21 laps on OBJ (all the way down to the Slate). They had cleared snow the day before and put a tarp over the hood of the Jeep to cross. They broke 3 boats and 1 paddle, and had two flat tires, not to mention some gross looking chapped lips and faces from the ice cold water. Below is David at the 25 footer... And at the 15 footer by the put in...
Now I didn't do the laps, but here is a shot of me at the 25 footer after it warmed up, but that same season!
