    that's about the only thing I didn't run into. I tomahawked about 900 feet down the McGown Couloir.

    Unfortunately at your expense, but this is a fascinating and educational read, thanks for posting. You should add these links to your blog post: http://www.network54.com/Forum/105717/thread/1499397343

    Wow I had to go look at the Strava for myself. In first 11 seconds you lost 656 feet of elevation. Glad you are still mostly in one piece.

    Incredible! Assuming a 45 degree slope that equates to 58mph! But why does Strava only show max speed=35mph, probably because it only accounts for horizontal and not vertical speed: https://support.strava.com/hc/en-us/articles/216919487
