Actually when doing something like this I am thinking about two things. First is how I can't wait to get past this section, and second I hope there's another way down. If there is why didn't I take that way up in the first place?
From what I can find is Eiger final arret. Correct me if I am wrong.

Little embarrassing my dad knew about this video before me. He walked in with his new copy of SI, had it opened to a pic of Bradt running the falls and told me to go find the video.
Sadly no pictures or videos of the record breaking drop yet but Kayak Session just posted the first interview with Tyler Bradt.Â There are some good pics of him running some other big waterfalls as well as some pics of Palouse Falls.
In March, Brazilian Pedro Oliveira ran a 127-foot falls in Brazil breaking Tyler Bradtâ€™s former 107-foot record (alexandra falls, NWT canada). There was huge media coverage worldwide about Oliviaâ€™s record. While most people imagined this record would stay for a very long time, Tyler Bradt just ran the 186 ft (nearly 60-meter) Palouse Falls in Washington State, smashing Oliviaâ€™s record by 59 ft!!!
In an exclusive first interview for Kayak Session mag, Tyler answers some of the burning questions everyone has been wondering about since the news came outâ€¦
It sounds like the run will be in â€œDream Resultâ€ coming out some time next spring.Â "The footage will be out soon in the media."
TED has a lot of interesting stuff. Some is very cutting edge technology presentations that probably wouldn't mesh well with this site. I do love wingsuits though.
