Have You Seen This? Ridge running is terrifying
No Caption - photo by Martha Ostergar
BANANAS TOWN Filmmaker Sbastien Montaz-Rosset likes to trail run. But theres trail running and then theres trail running.

Montaz-Rosset posted a video Aug. 9 of what he simply called an evening jog, but dont let that innocuous phrase fool you. The video shows him taking his trail-running love to dizzying and insane heights as he travels along a ridge in the French Alps.

I know, that doesnt sound special. But when you watch this video, youll see that this particular ridge is just wide enough for one person to walk it, with incredibly steep dropoffs on each side. To run the blasted thing is ill-advised in and of itself, but Montaz-Rosset runs it as quickly as he can. On top of all that bananas-town behavior, he even jumps down steep bits of the trail.

Montaz-Rosset filmed the run with a camera strapped to his head so we could watch the video from a first-person point of view. Wasnt that nice?

I dont know about the rest of you, but sometimes I have trouble staying on a sidewalk wide enough for three with a 4-inch curb drop on one side. But Ive never been accused of having physical prowess either.

Whatever your prowess, please watch this video at your own risk, and please dont try this at home or on a mountain ridge near you.
