So after we cleared what we could in the Buttresses, I went upstream. Above the bridge that the climbers use, the stream splits in 2 braids. The river left braid is the main channel. I was able to cut some low limbs, but there are still a couple more. I couldn't get to them with out getting into the water and there were too many boulderites around to get these trimmed. These limbs could be trouble if you take the left line, which seems the best at the low level. Further up stream, there is a small tree hanging over the water with branches hanging down into the main channel. Above that, but below the major landslide creek repair, there is a small cotton wood across/blocking the main channel that still needs to be removed. AS you go up and above the first class IV section, there is a spot where the creek channel got pushed to the far left there is one more low limb over the channel that looks to be a problem at lower water. I could not see anything else.
Jeff and Beth, wish I had my boat with me to paddle with you guys. It looked pretty fun even thou it was low. The right hand turn after the buttresses looked very different, wider/boney with no real clear channel at low water? How was the channelization after the bridge right before town? I know they had an excavator in there?
It is supposed to be 70 Friday, maybe we could meet again late afternoon for quick clear and paddle, if anyone is interested?
