Notes:

This is the biggest waterfall I have ever run (and am likely to run!).  It is about as easy as a 35 footer (or so, some claim it is higher) can be, with the shape of the drop pretty much doing the work of setting the proper angle of descent.  Everything went so well it took me about a half day to realize why my neck was so sore when I woke up the next morning.  Comparing notes, all of us who ran the Falls had the same experience!
