Forums Trip Reports VIDEO: First Person Chuter Viewing 12 posts - 1 through 12 (of 12 total) Author Posts June 27, 2006 at 12:53 am #567932 jimw 1420 Posts Here’s my last hurrah for this season. It’s a vid comprised of helmetcam footage from my last couple of trips to the Dana Plateau in May (Exhibit A and Exhibit B). Hence the insanely original title. If nothing else, at least I know that p420 will approve of 1/2 of the soundtrack… Insider tip: note the brief appearance of the reverse-mounted splitboard binding at around 3:18. It’s the new trend. 🙂 First Person Chuter Stream it or Download it (about 49 MB) Enjoy! June 27, 2006 at 2:28 am #589542 mtnrider 740 Posts Nice work Jim! Way to slay…you’re going to have to keep your new mounting system flowing man. How are some of you posting the new “You Rock” icon? June 27, 2006 at 3:31 am #589543 TEX 2486 Posts Excellent job Jim. I told you KC and the Sunshine Band was the Best all time steeps music. Way to rock!!!

June 27, 2006 at 5:51 am #589545 jimw 1420 Posts It’s steep on the descent too. 🙂 Usually the only time I get gripped on the ascent is if I think the descent might be questionable, or if the snow conditions start getting unstable or hard and icy, both of which certainly have happened. In this case, on the second day at the very top of the climb, maybe the last 50 feet or so, I started punching through this slab to soft sugar snow, which was a little unnerving. It was isolated to just that particular spot, probably because the aspect changed more northward slightly. I was descending a more east-facing aspect so it was fine on the way down. Just to clarify… the first half was up Powerhouse, down 3rd Pillar; the second half was up Powerhouse, down Powerhouse. Hey Tommy – you rock! :thatrocks: You can select it from the “View more Emoticons” link. Or you can just type it in: :thatrocks: p420, it was a tough call between “Get Down Tonight, “Shake Your Booty”, and “That’s The Way I Like It”, but how can you go wrong with those choices? 🙂 June 27, 2006 at 6:36 pm #589546 Rico in AZ 559 Posts dude, jim i think i saw your gps while you were crawling on the rocks like a mountain goat! 😉 sweet run too! June 27, 2006 at 7:57 pm #589547 bcrider 4149 Posts Awesome work Jim! You ripped the shit out of those lines. :thatrocks: June 28, 2006 at 12:41 am #589548 joesnow 46 Posts Great shit, plateau Jim. That was some of the best 10 mins of video I’ve watched in a while. The mellow acoustic guitar riff over the mandatory hairball climbs, scoping of lines, etc. was really cool and original. Glad to see redemption on 3rd Pillar, as well as incredible untracked in Powerhouse. Thanks for taking it all the way to the end of the last little snowfinger…..although I think you could have milked it just a little further on the 3rd Pillar out. 😉 June 28, 2006 at 7:11 am #589549 philfort 31 Posts I really enjoyed that video. thanks! June 28, 2006 at 3:09 pm #589550 SanFrantastico 1514 Posts Yeah – it made the hair stand up on the back of my neck when you kept looking over the edge.. Putting the poo in swimming pool since 1968. June 28, 2006 at 4:40 pm #589551 SanFrantastico 1514 Posts PS – I emailed the link to my brother who is a little afraid of hieghts. This is his comment… OK, that is some SPOOKY SHIT! When he’s looking down over the cliffffffff…ohhhhhhh my penis. 😛 Putting the poo in swimming pool since 1968. July 1, 2006 at 2:14 am #589552 jimw 1420 Posts Thanks SF, it’s good to know that my actions can make another dude talk about his penis… Glad you guys enjoyed the vid. Joe, you shoulda been there, Powerhouse was prime that day! I know I really should have milked that exit from the 3rd Pillar day all the way… what can I say? I wussed out. Guess I just have to go back next year. 🙂 Viewing 12 posts - 1 through 12 (of 12 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
