Talking 36er up 68 stairs!

It had been a little over 2 years since successfully hopping up this huge set of 68 stairs on my 36er unicycle. (what was I thinking!?) So now, at 61, I wanted to find out if there was still enough fire left in the old furnace to do it again! Boy was I in for a SHOCK!

Big thanks to steadicam cinematographer Sam Moskowitz & his friend George Irizarri for filming this. Great job guys! Check it out and watch till the end to see them being filmed, filming me!

They look like shallow steps; can you ride up them?

Thanks guys. @lightbulbjim: Not as shallow as they might look and steeper than it looks. I've managed about 6-8 stairs on a fat tire MUni but you simply run out of momentum. Hopping up those 68 stairs with a heavy 36er is tough; even if it was a smooth walkway with no steps!
