we ran it @ 16k three weeks ago...14', make your moves quick, superfun though...the wave train on the right @ warm springs was awesome...a usual hole @ lower water was a billowing haystack/wave (3rd one), runnable, buried us nicely for a moment, then hit the middle seem on the hole on the right, then strong pull R of the maytag, then pull L to avoid hole bottom R @ the curve to the L...
PS overall great big water intro to intermediate kayakers...1st day was in my creekboat and got my ass handed to me by a beastly lateral in a no-name rapid...moments of terror-anticipation await...have fun!

Thought the same thing...what the hell are you going to do with a throwbag here?

I've posted some pics and a full trip report from our 5/25 launch: Desolation Dory Blog

Loved the joey's in kurtmo's crew! "You Christensen!?" hahaha.

Happy boating.

Hey Ocutah,

Just today (7/23) went to your blog and read your trip report. Nicely done. Sorry to hear about the flip. Glad no one was hurt - the Tecate was a good trade off.

Apologies for the conduct of our "joey". He and she are actually very, very nice folks. He's a little crusty though as you could tell. A little interesting story about them. In 1984 when Powell almost topped Glen Canyon dam and they were cranking 100,000+ through the canyon they were on the river. Got dropped a notice at House Rock by a park service heliocopter that big water was coming. She was rowing the same Avon Red Shank that they had on the Yampa and he was in a kayak. Talk about a wild ride! I guess all this is neither here nor there but they are both very good river people, same as you, and I know you would like 'em if you knew 'em.

All the best to you. Hope to see you on the river again!
