Mind over matter

It takes more than talented riders to make this kind of a trip happen. Left photo, left to right: Habenicht, Dustin Carroll (pilot), Debari, Ted (guide), Absinthe's Justin Hostynek and DCP, posing with our trusty bird from AK Heli. On the right, this was Habenicht's third trip to AK, so he has some experience on the terrain, but even so, it's still mind over matter when stepping to something as big as this cliff. Distance and size can be hard to judge, often resulting in something being larger than a rider anticipates. (Jeff Hawe)
