I made an amazing geologic discovery!

So I found out from an old friend that "Valhalla" has been known for some time. Maybe they didn't explore the whole thing, but he has pictures of his experience,

he writes:

"The Jonathan Korn search, 7/31/1992. We spent the night down

there in an unplanned bivouac. I got all on film."

I watched it. It was neat, but somehow I kind of figured that if you followed just about any drainage in the PNW you're going to find a lot of that kind of terrain.

 

I think it was nice for OPB to do a cool spot on it, good viewing but a little too much drama for something that looks kind of mellow if you've ever done any canyoneering.

OPB hit the jackpot on this one. Hyped it up for weeks then dropped it just before a pledge drive. Smart.

 

The show seemed more like bad reality television than journalism to me but cool to know this spot is in my back yard.

 

I wonder how long until Dan Helmstadter skis it?

So she wasn't a virgin after all.

And now she's been rap bolted and filmed for TV.

In March, David Lama and Red Bull will film a naked zip line descent.

In April, Ivan will aid to the top, build a bonfire in her mouth, get busted, and the defiling will be complete.

But somehow this thread lives on!

I watched the video and found it very compelling. Thanks for seeing it through and providing the story. I'll bet there are a few of those in north cascades. I saw an impenetrable valley near mt logan that had a whole valley side fracture and slide many meters in a v shape. Pretty sure nobodies seen that valley either.
