this video is from the clear creek of the ark. spillway. this past summer was the first time it ran in 6 or 7 years. the damn guys came out and watched, they were super nice and even dialed her up for the kayaker then dialed her back down for the mini me raft and duckie. we left em a 12 pack at the gate. the run in is like class 2 then about 200-300ft slide into the 15-20ft drop.

I took the video with a olympus waterproof camera so its not the best video but still kinda funny.

The big UK dam is sick. I think the Paonia spillway would be the closest comparable in Colorado. The Paonia might be scarier because I think its steeper.

I think it was Dave Fusilli who pulled the Loop in the Yule vid. He can loop better than you.
