"On this southern side [of the mountain ridge] it drops down about 7000ft (2,133m) almost dead vertical into the abyss."

In "Summit 2 Sea: The Expedition" from PechaKucha Accident Vol. 4Jesse Shimrock shares his harrowing month long experience of being on the first expedition to summit North America's highest mountain, Alaska's Denali at 20,320ft (6,914m) and then descend all the way to sea level ending on a rafting expedition from river to ocean.
