Video: Kayakers work hard for their whitewater

High Sierra Safety (a full length film) from 7 Finger media on Vimeo.

PADDLING -- This nifty video is a nicely filmed, beautifully thought out how-to story about kayakers hiking into one world's most famous Class 5 overnighters.

The group is up for running Upper Cherry Creek near Yosemite National Park, a trip that requires an 11-mile hike with their kayaks before they could put in.

You're likely to learn something by watching this full-length video (above).

Here's a short vignette of the paddling.
