"InOctober 1998 an American whitewater paddling team traveled deep into the T sangpo Gorge in Tibet to run the Yarlung Tsangpo, known in paddling circlesas the "Everest of rivers." On Day 12 of that trip, the team's ace paddler , one of four kayakers on the river, launched off an eight-foot waterfall and flipped. He and his overturned kayak spilled into the heart of the thunderous "freight training" river and were swept downstream, never to be seen again." - from the dj. Vg in unclipped dj. 25.00
