Lefthand belongs on the manky list,never done WFCC or Turkey but it is at least as manky as Bear Creek.Two attempts this year one at a respectable level, made it half way down past the second narrows the best part other than the crux and probably the mankiest part,then couldn't avoid some jagged ass fan rock in a mellow part and ripped a 10" gash in my ducky had to bail.Went back 3 or 4 days later,it was low 2 inches below the gauge ,we decided to run it thinking it would be easier,wrong there was an F U rock about every half a boat length had a lot of problems[ picture running a Dancer down Bear creek at low water] and a couple of short but brutal swims,shins and kneecap beat to hell.Jason stomped everything except a piton in the crux and alot of boat abuse to his Nomad.Still love that little fucker,most enduring memory was of Jason holding a bush with one hand and my boat with the other and yelling at me to hurry up as his arms were being pulled out of the sockets then saw a bear with 2 cubs at the takeout.

Don't know about AA that high but Foxton at 700+ is as good or better than AA AT 500 TO 600 like someone said it is just one good 4 and 2 or three big holes to skirt,i imagine they and the ones in Railroad Tunnel are way burly at 1000 + though.

Alto Alto is at that level....snuck in an after work paddle tonight, didn't leave boulder till 6:30pm. Fun big waves and holes to punch and skirt. Feels like some big water in those little gorges. Consider this run for your evening fix.

This thread made me laugh, I was gonna start my own or comment on a more recent one, but heck, this one includes the COUNT.
