Chris Korbulic Runs 100-Foot Waterfall in California

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


Korbulic took a huge hit to his eye at the bottom. The cut needed 17 stitches when he got to the hospital in nearby Chico, California.
