    Extreme kayakers are crazy.

    No, they see lines where others see the un runnable. Just like most of the Class IV / V runs in the US that were nearly un runnable in the 70's and are now regularly run by second or third year boaters.

    I dont care what you think waterfall jumping is asking for problems. But to each his own.

    My God. I've hiked that river, and the thought of taking a kayak through that is mind bending. Ballsy doesn't even start to describe that run.

    Looked like more climbing than kayaking. Crazy!
