there are some holy crap moments, but for me, the location overwhelmed the riding and did not serve the intended purpose. still, damn beautiful and danny has courage to spare.

his first video is still my favorite, but i'm glad he continues to push.

Thanks, climb. Always like seeing his stuff, and what a gorgeous place.

Reminds me of this video (http://www.adventure-journal.com/2014/09/video-sketchy-exposed-slow-technical-mountain-biking-is-just-a-little-bit-radical/) I saw last week - pretty sick.

Thanks for sharing. The location was fantastic and I agree that it overwhelmed the riding...but he has such amazing skills. Not only can he ride, but he was climbing up mountains caring his bike :eek:

Wow, that's some crazy stuff. That front flip over the fence at the end was pretty cool.

Personally I loved the setting and don't think it detracted from the riding. This video kind of shifted into Hans Rey's style of riding.

Those knife's edge shots have a high pucker factor.

Some of the head camera shots were nerve racking as was the painful singing. I wonder how much it cost to shoot.

Hahaha that was my first thought as well. Also I bet it was a nice peaceful row till that helicopter flew by 50ft over his head :)

That trick where he flipped over the fence was the best I thought.

That shot was most likely taken by a drone. In the credits, I noticed mention of a drone pilot.

Good to see him back. He was hurtin' for awhile, recovering from some bang ups. Can't see how that would happen.

Insane! Just friggin insane! I was glued to my seat watching. Like watching an extraterrestrial world for me. The guy's seriously good, the idea insane, the doing of the idea insane, the location beyond insane. Wow!

The aerials were all drone photography.

That. Was. Awesome.

My favorite one so far...taps into the spiritual side of the ride.

I thought it was amazing, and to me the scenery was beautiful and a welcome change from his awesome videos shot in more urban settings. I did find the helmet-cam stuff unnerving (especially the climb up that insanely steep, narrow ridge) and also a little motion sickness-inducing, though.

In many ways, this also shows a different kind of handling skill. This rocks are big, and they would knock most folks off line and over the edge pretty quickly.

Insane skills and scenic beauty.

As I was watching him move and climb to different spots I was just in awe, smiling and saying to myself "Oh, no way... no way...".

Holy Moly I can't believe what he can do on a bike. I'd be happy just hiking that route.
Very impressive.
