Anyone run Black Rock yesterday?

Did anyone run Black Rock yesterday, if so, was it worth it?

Ran it last night at 6pm, from the put in to the culvert. It's fun, but there's a lot of FU rocks in between the rapids. Black rock is tecnhical, and the Narrows are OK. I told myself I would wait until it has about 250 (which it might after a couple of days of warm weather, as we're having), but it's good enough for an after work lap. We didn't hit Rigor, but probably should have- that would have given it a little more sauce. If it stays at the same level and you have another good option, go with that..

I scouted the Narrows in the morning yesterday at about 260. It looked like there was plenty of water. One drop looked a bit boney and some of the run out was a little boney. We are doing from below Rig down to CC PP tonight.

Yeah, it was weird yesterday, though- it dropped out to 215 by the end of the end.. I wish we had 260. Looks good today (currently 306)...
