 Mass respect to Wade Simmons on this day... just a raw loose rock landing with a shorter runout. kicked a few rocks out of the way at the takeoff. no modern day smoothness here. Both Thomas Vanderham and Randy Spangler (filming second angle on takeoff) both helping Wade judge speed for his successful 2 attempts. Fuji Provia 100 speed slide film. Simmons, the Godfather of freeride.

 Search for the Holy Trail, In Concert, Down, Double Down, Jib 1, 2, NWD Freewheel Burning, Ride the Lightning, Rampage on DVD.... god damn that it was.

 @scott-townes: the down series was pretty terrible in hindsight but at the time seeing people just riding of cliff after cliff was pretty awesome. Krispy's double down 2 seggy was rad and is still rad.
