Alto Alto - Beta and do i really need a creek boat?

Ok, Alto Alto looks like fun in the CRC. Can anyone give me some info?

Is a creek boat necessary for this stuff? It sounds like a bunch of pour overs and eddie hopping. Nothing too big.

we hopped in at 1000 a few years ago in our playboats and wished we had the creekers---it was so stomping

sounds good

Its been sitting around 250-300 for awhile.

Sounds like a good after work run. Thanks for the info.

You will definately be fine with your playboat on Alto right now. Its at a fun level but is definately boney at spots. I ran it Saturday and had a blast (even though one of my buddies swam and his boat floated for almost 2 miles before it got stuck). If you are going to head up there this week sometime and wouldnt mind another paddler you can count me in. Let me know. Also, a question for everyone else, I heard a few years ago someone got killed on an undercut rock somewhere on this run. I was trying to figure out where it was. Does anyone know so I can make sure to be extra carefull around there?

yeah, it'd be nice to have another paddler. We're shooting for Friday afternoon around 5pm. Give me your email and I'll keep you informed.

Any access issue at the take out or the proper put in? Where have people been putting? Bridge on PktoPk or up Rollinsville Rd? There is a landowner that can be a bit cranky. As for the death, it was a few years ago. It was a 17 year old girl in a Kmart raft. She got pinned at the trestle bridge near Pinecliff. I know there has been good carnage but I have not heard of any kayaker deaths on Alto Alto. We may be heading up Thrusday afterwork.

ps - can anyone tell me if portage of drops is possible?
