  • A sequence of Korbulic running a 100-plus-foot waterfall, which he dubbed 199 Problems, on California's South Branch of the Feather.

  • The 100-foot waterfall in the foreground is the final piece of the steepest section of whitewater ever run in a kayak—900 feet per mile.

  • Korbulic in the midst of the action.

  • A view from the lip of 199 Problems. Korbulic had to avoid launching from the granite pillar under the spray on the right to maintain control.

  • Korbulic tosses wishbone-shaped driftwood into the river to test the fall line of the descent.
