      Eddie Bauer adventure kayakers Ben Stookesberry and Chris Korbulic have run some isolated and burly rivers in their day. But the first sucessful run of the Marble Fork of the Kaweah in Sequoia National Park was another level of commitment entirely. The mission involved an eight-day portage and vertical epic of establishing a sporty big-wall traverse with the assistance of Yosemite-based climbers Forrest Noble and Jared Johnson then a five-hour descent into a never-before-run, two-thousand-foot deep canyon with no potential for escape. Located in Stookesberry’s backyard of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, the Kaweah River flows from greater than 12,000 feet of elevation to near sea level in less than 30 miles. The steep gradient combined with snowpacks that average 30 feet deep, and melt quickly in hot California sun, has carved canyons into 100-million-year-old bedrock that creates an ideal scenario for whitewater kayaking. But the most challenging aspect of slaying the Marble Fork portion of this river was exhibiting the patience to hit it at exactly the right flow—a once-a-decade occurrence—that allowed them to tick off the Impossible Gorge section that was long considered un-runnable by the kayak world.

        Now more than 30 year's after the California First Descent gold Rush began. First Descents in California are hard to come by. After a warm up run through the Fantasy Falls of the Mokelumne that was first navigated by Lars Holbeck and Chuck Stanley in 1983, Ben Stookesberry and Chris Korbulic along with Forest Noble and Jared Johnson take on Falls Creek in Yosemite National Park to the lip of the second highest waterfall in California. As a grand finale, Chris Korbulic takes on a massive drop on California's South Branck of the feather producing a new world record for the steepest continuous mile of river ever descended by kayak.

          On December 7th 2010, Hendri Coetzee was taken just one km upstream of the Bridge at Kabeya Maji. When Chris Korbulic and I entered town we were shown the kind of compassion and caring that we did not believe existed anywhere in the world let alone in the middle of the Congo. We are committed to making a positive contribution to a community that showed us so much kindness in our darkest hour. And a positive contribution would benefit this community as much as anywhere I have seen in the world. Today the village is still plagued by the aftermath of war including a lack of clean drinking water that causes periodic outbreaks of Colera. At the only available water source there is the very real threat of Crocodile attack. Yet despite these challenges among many others, the Village carries on with a spirit and zest for living that is admirable under any conditions let alone those found in today's rural Congo basin.

              Picture this: you are sitting on a raging river in a plastic boat and quickly approaching the lip of a 60 foot drop that would catapult you over the edge of a huge waterfall and into the pool below. For most people, this might be the scene out of a bad dream...but for First Ascent Athletes Chris Korbulic and Ben Stookesberry, running waterfalls is what expedition kayaking is all about. Here, the two describe what it's like to take that ride over the lip of the falls and the feeling you get of wanting to do it again after it's done. www.firstascent.com
