I’m sure the folks involved with this epic splitboard mission are heads down working on editing the footage but we do have a bit of James Buehler’s POV video from the top of the line and photographs of the route.  Not exactly sure of Alta’s policy is here but notably their corporate Instagram account liked the post. Rad:

“Alta is for scoochin’ !! This is getting down to the crux!! So hyped for this one!!  Cro was just as hyped to wake up at 2am with us and film it long lens and shoot photos of our descent.! It’s been a wild ride so far!!”
