That was, good find Pat. Nice music selection too, for a second I thought we were getting the 'Jaws' soundtrack. Glad we didn't have to deal with the traffic jam, probably since it was rainy our day. I went to Telluride once in the early 70's and was looking up at that wall and a guy told me there was a road over the top. Believe my response was No Frikken Way : )

I just watched it again (it's 6* F ohboy) and at the 2:15 mark, he either got very lucky or has great depth perception. Looks like he just missed that heavy cable strung across the passage. eek money

Yep noticed that too, I think he was more lucky than good.

A short video from my 2015 visit to South Africa. A section of R332 in the Baviaanskloof Nature Preserve from Combrinks Pass down to the west gate.

The biggest challenge was those intermittent concrete tracks meant for 4x4 vehicles. They would be broken in places and the erosion around them caused quite a few interesting drops.
