    Video - South Mountain, up the falls

    I was transferring some old videotapes to DVD and came across this 11 year old clip from South Mountain. Thought you guys might be interested. Note the vintage hardtail, bar ends, etc (ahh, those were the days). I've seen alot of videos of people coming down the waterfall, but this is going up.

    The quality is not the greatest, but hey, we are talking 1993 here.

    Sweet old school footage.

    Skills are skills regardless of the year. Nice climbing.

    Good job! Awesome riding...

    This is way harder than it looks on the video, esp. the bottom section (vid #2). Nice going, nice video too.
    Cheers

    that footage of the lower waterfall is sick. as long as i have ridden south i have never seen anyone do it so easy. the upper waterfall is not really a hard climb but he hits that pretty smooth as well, that guy gets much respect!

    Thanks for the comments. The sad part is I can only nail that section maybe 25% of the time now days. It sucks to know you have hit your peak, and its all downhill from here!
