Pin And Rescue

It is never a good thing when someone gets pinned. However if it works out well and others can learn from the experience then all is good.

Ultimate Ears Roll Speaker – First Look

You may be wondering why we have a Bluetooth speaker here on Unsponsored, but please read on. You may have seen the UE Roll speaker system in various eddies throughout the summer pumping out tunes at a number of high profile playspots and competitions.

Ultimate Ears Roll Review

The speaker is IPX7-rated waterproof so it is quite happy being near or even in water. Ultimate Ears even make a small inflatable rubber ring for the Roll to sit in, allowing you to park the Roll in an eddy or use the inbuilt bungee cord to tether it to a rock or tree.

Movie Monday 26 October 2015

More Monday Whitewater Movies from the Unsponsored film board. Fill your boots.

Informal Gathering at Quake Lake

In 1959 an earthquake struck southwestern Montana and a massive landslide tore down the side of the mountain, burying 28 people who were camping in the area. The landslide backed up the river and created “Quake” lake. It also formed this unique 3 mile stretch of whitewater. It is shallow, sharp, consistent, and the only place near bozeman with water in October. Enjoy!

The south fork of the feather river is nestled deep in the woods of the northern Sierras, and is a great place to find yourself during the fall season. With a reliable release courtesy of Little Grass Valley reservoir, a ridiculously stacked first gorge, and about 10 miles of class IV/IV+ that follows, it’s hard to beat. This year, due to the drought, flows on the South Feather were up in the air; however, we were pleasantly surprised with a release that lasted just under a month, which provided us many opportunities to get into one of my favorite day runs in the northern half of the state.
