This is raw, unedited headcam footage I shot of my descent of Metlako Falls, OR. It is the first major waterfall as you hike up Eagle Creek from the parking lot. Metlako is measured at 101 feet from pool to pool, with about 90 feet of freefall. I followed about 3 minutes after Paul Gamache of Arcata, CA ran first. It was a long way to the bottom. The visor on my helmet broke and slammed into my face, my spray skirt imploded and I swam. I cannot wait to do it again. Filmed with a GoPro Headcam. November 29, 2009
