Re: Kind of extreme....

This was taken with a go pro hero wide angle lens. It makes things look WAY narrower than they really are..... There was one a while back where a guy was riding along the edge of a cliff... When he turned around and looked back for some reason you got a better perspective of how wide the trail really was ...... It's probably not nearly as narrow as the video suggests...


Camera trickery...

Still, you probably wouldn't catch me up there....

Re: Kind of extreme....

You can see the extreme curvature of the horizon due to the wide angle lens. It is not as bad as it looks but you still would not catch me up there on a GS. Even at half the steepness of the hills it is a long way down.
