Most everyone (99.9%?) who travel the mountains are unaware of it, but like the "Second Wave" of big wall climbers out of Camp 4 in the late '60's-early to mid '70's, the current wave of extreme kayakers doing mind-blowing, ever more difficult runs that are simply beyond what people could imagine a decade ago, maybe even five years ago, are creating a legacy that is impacting the world. People like Evan Garcia, Darin McQuoid, Chris Korbulic, Ben Stookesberry and the so-called Shasta Boys are showcasing the amazing and world class Sierra canyons as places to set new standards, just as Yosemite did back in the day.
I am an absolute hack at kayaking, but I have learned enough to marvel at what these people have done to utterly blow away old standards. Plus I love the scenery
