A note from the NYFalls.com founder:
Due to a company restructuring, I will be losing my full time job soon. Although it saddens me to leave the company that I have helped build up for the last 14 years to the success it is today, I am looking forward to new opportunities. I am known for my technical, managerial, and creative abilities, and I hope to utilize all of those talents in my next career. I put together a résumé outlining my skills and projects. Please have a look. Although I am open to any management position, I would like to leverage my experience and success with NYFalls.com and NYHistoric.com into a career in the WNY travel/tourism industry. If you know of a company that would benefit from someone with talents and experience, please spread the word. Thank you for your help and support.
Here is my Resume | Discussion topic

hmmm... seems like flickr doesn't allow websites to use BBCODE to embed it.
This website doesn't take the embed code, because doing that also allows people to embed anything (including viruses and spyware).

Damned flickr. ;)

Anyway, here's the vid of my solo climb up Grimes 1. Many thanks to Matt for color-correcting the video for me. My apologies for the shakiness in the video; we were not using a tripod to shoot.

:) Yeah, I was waiting for the rope, then I just said, "ah screw it, I can't go too far if I do slip, so what the hell..." I'm kinda glad I did get up there when I did, tho, with that rock Ben sent my way accidentally. If you watch that vid in slow motion, you can see that rock go flyin' down the falls. Had I still been standing there, my legs would have likely been obliterated.

This is one of my favorite pics from that day. This one, and the one of Ben looking back over his shoulder in front of #3.

When we went back on Memorial Day, the flow was a bit lower. We actually sat in that little channel at the top of #2. Quite fun! Current was nowhere near as strong as it was when we were there.

Image

We also stuck our heads through the cascade off that ledge at the top of the channel to cool off....

Image

Ben's camera is waterproof, so that went in as well....
