Never Say Never

May 10, 2009

Metlako Falls is a perfect 101 ft. waterfall from pool to pool with an 82 ft. freefall. Last spring I hiked up Eagle Creek to watch a couple of friends fire it off and I said I would never run anything that insane.

On Mother's Day 2009, the 5 year anniversary of Dave Grove's first descent, I had a change of heart and had a successful run of Metlako with Evan Garcia and Todd Wells. It was almost double the size of anything I had ever ran before and a new women's world waterfall record.
