Over 20 years ago Dave Hatchett rode this line. No one had ever ridden a 60 degree face in powder. Dave was told by his crew that he would die if he attempted it. He broke down barriers that day and changed the way we look at the mountains. Here @rylandbell follows in the footsteps of one of his heroes and mentors and fulfills his dream of someday riding #mendenhalltowers.

The whole run must be seen to realize the hazard. Very long and steep above exposure the entire ride
The movie lines catches all the action step by step in an unbelievable documentary fashion, this face is legendary! Just as @jonessnowboards thank you all in that movie for all you've done for the sport we love.
