Nate Hills Flirting With Death on Colorado’s Palisade Plunge 10

Ah yes, the long awaited and often asked for Palisade Plunge edit. As it turns out, Noah Sears and I waited a bit too long as the top of the Plunge is currently closed for the season after recent snow. We rode the bottom 7 or so miles up onto the mesa as an out and back. From what I have been told, this is the best section anyways and the other 20 plus miles are underwhelming. That said, I am still stoked to come back next summer and ride this thing from the top to form my own opinion. The bottom section is absolutely world-class in my opinion, with enough jank and exposure to keep me smiling from top to bottom. This trail took a ton of work and passion and it is a welcome addition to the West Slope experience. Kudos to the builders, those rocks don't stack themselves. West slope, best slope.
