"Walled In" presented by Eddie Bauer
Since finding kayaking on a hot summer day 15 years ago, Ben
Stookesberry has sought out the most challenging river expeditions
in the world. But with this challenge comes extreme risk, and
there is plenty of that where he is going next. When Ben
first laid eyes on the Marble Gorge in California's Sierra Nevada
Mountains, he knew he would have to find the right team to have any
chance of success. The river is more comparable to the big
walls of Yosemite, with more vertical drop than El Cap, over a
stretch of river that is steeper that the cable route up Half Dome.
After four years of waiting, his dream team of expert
kayakers and technical climbing specialists is assembled.
Meet Forrest Noble, Jared Johnson, Eric Seymour, and Chris
Korbulic. Though probably the best possible team for this high
exposure mission, they are pushed to their limits to complete this
descent of a lifetime.
