I love doing that. That place looks like it would be so much fun. The waterfall definitely makes it and the pictures are awesome.


Ithaca, NY has some nice gorges. The one I went to had a 6', 20', 40' 60' and 120' drop. I did the 40' and 60', but the 120' is on the other side of the dam, and that scared me. Here in Rochester we have the Erie Canal what my friends and I go jumping in. there are 2 drops, one at ~25' and other at ~35', but that one is scary as hell... especially when you are scared of heights like I am.

Wow 120 would scare the crap out of me... there'* a 65 foot place there, but it'* really really scetch.. like you'd have to jump though some small limbs. it hurt some at 45 feet... 120 could kill you if you screw up.

Too bad it'* not possible to get a Bonne out there. That would make a great set of pics.
I see you're in upstate *.C. I'm down in the low country near Charleston.

Yea... 120' wasn't even considered in my mind. The 60' scared the crap out of me as well, but it was the only way I could get my friend to go off the 40' (she doesn't like being showed up ) Needless to say the 60' did hurt... I pressurized my left ear and it didn't equalize for a week. but it got her to jump.

I'd like to find your spot there if I ever get to SC because I think the waterfall would be awesome... How is the water since it is moving... is it cold? is there any pull under?

Very cold... i didn't experience any under current, and the pool you jump into is very deep. The waterfall is called courthouse falls, and is just outside of Brevard, NC. If you wanna go there are directions on the web. It'* acutally one of the safer jumps i've done.. strait down, nice and deep.
