Only relative in that you inflated the flow by 60% or so....

The inflation is prob my fault. I looked at the AW gauge without even looking which gauge it was reporting.

I'd like to say I was in but sheesh, the highest flow I've been paddling for over 8 months has been the 388 cfs in the poudre narrows. Not exactly training for big water.

Who is claiming 21k? Highest I know of is 18k by a local crew probably 15 years ago. Would be nice to know the highest descent. Anybody?

Cross @ 20K

I did a Westwater trip about 8-10 years ago with some of the older guard of WW around here. Now before anyone alleges that that's the ol' pot calling the kettle black, recall I was young once. Anyhow, they were celebrating a buddies 50th and they invited myself, my wife, and another friend along to cook up (as I recall it) some of the best damn meals ever eaten on a river, ever. On the night of the birthday bash, between moonlit Little D rides, they busted out an old tape recording that commemorated this individuals life accomplishments. On that tape was an ABC wide world of sports audio recording about a failed attempts by a European kayaker to drop into Cross Mtn at 20K. Something about an epic fail. What I recall vividly, was how they told the story of how the birthday boy had then dropped into Cross the next day, at slightly higher flows, and made Euro boy look bad by styling that thing.
I'm pretty sure he's still living in Boulder along with the others from that WW trip. Great crew and many of us use a silly little piece of electronic equipment in the winter months that they designed and manufacture. One of the mot memorable river trips of my life with those guys.

But I digress....who's dropping into Cross at 20K? Not me, I'll be on the deck sipping a cold one in my rocking chair.

What do you want on your tombstone?

If you don't die in Cross Mountain Gorge, you may during the next risk you take.

Lol...sit on the couch then...some people can free-solo the nose. I can't and it would be dumb for me to try, but I sure ain't gonna say they're stupid for doing it. Those people are freaking awesome. We all die in the end matter how safe you try to be. There's a lot of people out there who just have skills. Smurf, after you run it come tell us all how it went
