Michal Kollbek tempts fate on the White Line trail

The White Line trail in Sedona is every bit as high-consequence as it looks, with a near-vertical drop off the edge if you blow the corner or slide out. Michal Kollbek braved the long, off-camber slickrock ride and videographer Marshall Mullen captured the high-consequence ride from a drone. This one is sure to make your palms sweat and your stomach turn.
