Last nights 11 Mile TR:
260 feels low there to me, I regretted taking playboat after the extreme shallowness of the stream prohibited practically any play ever (insane potential though, wow). I now respect and envy anyone who paddles this geology on a regular basis, the only other place I have yet to see such daunting class III (3.3+/.4) is in the Black of the Gunny. Lots of pin-ops, bad spots to roll, seives. What looked from the road like the greatest rock-splat EVER turned out to be a two story boulder with a paddler-sized crack RIGHT in the middle of it.
There is a big river wide log around a corner after a set of little drops, its hard to miss from the road, mostly in the middle and closer to the top of the run than the bottom. It is pretty easy to get out for but once you can see the log from upstream, you have one eddy to catch on river left in the next 10 feet or so. Id slow my roll a bit once I got in the vicinity of that log.
What if this thing comes up more!? WOO! .. It won't, but its nice to dream.
Summary: It reminds me of the best parts of the Taylor, but steeper and more risky.
