There are a couple of reasons that the Stikine River in British Columbia is often considered the Everest of river kayaking. It's in the middle of nowhere, it passes through numerous sheer gorges, it requires extended portages over huge boulders and, oh yes, the rapids are somewhat intimidating.
None of this discourages the Catalunyan brothers, Gerd and Aniol Serrasolses. Along with a strong supporting cast, they confront the meanest that the Stikine can throw at them and pop up smiling -- no mean feat when the whitewater is this nasty. The hole that they skirt at 4:40 looks like something out of a Greek myth.
Stick around till the end to get the helmet-cam view of some of the most intense runs.
