Being on a knife-edge ridge, you get the best views. Live in this raw moment with Travis Rice as he scales across a knife edge ridge in Alaska to find his perfect line.
Some of the wildest knife-edge ridge footages we’ve seen are not even half as gnarly as the one you’re about to see featuring Travis Rice.
Mt. Katahdin, Alaska has several trails leading up to either Pamola or Baxter Peak. There are two trails, Hunt and Abol, accessible from the south side of the mountain each having its own separate parking lot. These trails start right up the mountain, but each trail on the mountain ends up taking eight to ten hours round-trip depending on ability.
Knife Edge, Alaska
Where: Xanadu, Alaska
Vertigo Rating: 10
The most famous hike to the summit goes along Knife Edge, which traverses the ridge between Pamola Peak and Baxter Peak. The mountain has claimed 23 lives since 1963, mostly from exposure in bad weather and falls from the Knife Edge. For about 3/10 of a mile the trail is 3 feet wide, with a drop off on either side. The Knife Edge is closed during periods of high wind.
These raw moments reveal a sneak peak at what’s to come in The Fourth Phase as well as an original GoPro series dropping in October 2016.
