A collection of photographs shows Kerry Lofy's Hell's Wall huck last week in the backcountry near Steamboat Ski Area. Lofy jumped the approximately 100-foot-tall cliff after having spent the year competing on an extreme skiing tour. The 22-year-old Wisconsin native loaded up on extra back braces and extra cushioning but credited his experience for managing the feat without injury.

Like so much about it, the exact height of Hell's Wall is up for debate. "Between 80 and 100 feet," 22-year-old Steamboat Springs extreme skier Kerry Lofy said. "Probably 90."
