VIDEO: Crazy Geology and Epic Whitewater on Chile’s Rio Claro

Dane Jackson has traveled around the world in search of whitewater to kayak, so when he says that a section of river is "about as narrow, committing, and epic as it ever gets," we'll take him at his word. Based on this video, we're hard-pressed to come up with a section of river that exists in the same league as the Rio Claro, much less eclipses it.

The virtually impassible walls, waterfalls, and tight chutes present on this river make whitewater kayaking the only way to explore it, and it's hard to imagine how one could evacuate should something go wrong. With all that in mind, we'll probably never run it, so big thanks to Dane Jackson for posting this video and letting us live vicariously through him.

I have watched the video of Jackson and was really an interesting video. I think it was an adventurous ride. Mostly preferred such types of videos and its only reason why I am a regular visitor of this site and this is one of my favorites Learn More Here

Rock climbing has gone from a niche sport to a fairly mainstream pastime over the past decade, and many old-guard climbers have seen their formerly quiet crags fill up with an influx of new climbers. RELATED: Check out the TGR Journal Vol. 1 There's nothing wrong with a sport gaining popularity, necessarily, but most people would agree that a sense of continuity is important in the community, especially when land-use ethics and responsible recreation practices are so critical.
