dan -- bottom is good for as low volume & tight as it is. i only did it once & i loved it. twisty granite bedrock, big-ish drops, but nothing like big boy or anything on yule's bottom 4 or anything on the toxaway. good creeky stuff that runs on a big rain & rarely gets run cuz there aren't many boaters near roanoke.

how many portages?

is this the steepest kayakable run? kayakable meaning steepest mile w/ no portages.
no way, it avg's like 200-300.

is toxaway steeper?

pretty sure ... similar character, but more water & bigger drops on raven

is yule creek steeper?
yes, 150-200 ft in 4 drops

is yule a mile long? hmm...
from the "standard" putin to the flats it's prolly a mile & it drops maybe 400 or so? kyle prolly knows for sure though ..
