Harnessed up and ready to get wet.

Mer at the top of the big drops (300 and 500 foot waterfalls).

Jared and Merlin heading over the lip of the drop.

Commando style's the proper way to go down this one.

Between the big drops - setting for the the 510 foot drop.

510 foot waterfall above sacred falls. Not sure which one of us it is at the top rappelling down.

Waterfall is to large to fit in one photo. Another rappeller coming down.

I don't recommend doing this hike in the dark. Start and early and bring a headlamp or flashlight anyway. Proud of those man boobs I am.
