It's fair to split the runs into thirds, with the top and bottom easy boogy water and a definite gorge in the middle. You'll be in and out of your boat a lot in the middle section where cutbanks and overgrowth make scouting and portaging slow. At flows over 200 things happen fast in the middle section and eddies are scarce, but everything can be walked. I'm only talking about the run from Torrey to Fruita, below that is roadside and there's only one rapid, the junky manmade cascade a few miles below fruita.
