VIDEO: The Dolores Hill Bomb is as Gnarly as Ever

Skateboarders pride themselves on their ability to face down incredibly sketchy situations and take injuries without complaint, and nowhere is that attitude more evident than at the Dolores Hill Bomb, an annual event loosely "held" on Dolores Street in San Francisco's Mission District.

Egged on by a howling crowd, riders of non-motorized wheeled vehicles (and at least one Onewheel) sped down a steep section of the street, and sometimes taking falls which can only be described as horrific. A shot of boarders hitching a ride up on the back of an ambulance carrying one of their friends just about sums up the event.

There was a death at this event, a guy on a bike who collided with a skateboarder, presumably at speed, the cyclist dying from injuries a couple of days later. He is not pictured anywhere in this video (there is a different cyclist-skateboarder collision where the cyclist is taken away in an ambulance; that’s not the one).

The area surrounding Powell River, BC is home to some of the finest granite big wall climbing in North America, and also home to some of the last stands of old-growth forest in the region. Local climbers have long benefited from easy access to remote zones thanks to logging roads and generous land use policies, but have struggled with the choice to look away as pristine valleys are stripped for timber.

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.
