to be clear kyle, the move at boateater is a RIGHT move and it is approaching if not a class V move. (V-?)
no noob belongs in the royal at high water and the ratings stop at 3500cfs which is a solid IV+ rating. So at 5K you can do some math to get V- or even V out of it. Sunshine all the way to just past sledge is one rapid, with madatory holes and super violent currents and eddies that according to whitewater ratings that would classify as a V. Admittedly I do not think it is that difficult less the move around boat eater. But if you are upside down or swimming I think V is fair
I think hooked is talking more about browns as a noob may be looking to have some fun on what is normally an easy run. Just saying that the most difficult rapid (zume) is actually one of the easier ones at high water and it is as difficult as it normally is. So if you think about portaging zume, perhaps you should run shuttle on this one. Once again low water in browns is class III, high water rating stops at 2200 which is rated IV- (IVs), obviously at over 5K the rating would show more class IV.
The numbers over 4K, I have no idea, IV+ still? Maybe V-? I don't really know I guess.
What do you guys think?
