2 of us headed down from Boulder this morning.
We stopped real quick to check out the bottom drop (V+). This thing is definitely a "cascading monstrosity" as I have heard it described.
We proceeded up to the top rapid. There is a decent sized class IV rapid above the crux move. It was very fun, and we lapped it a few times. It kinda felt like Pine Creek on steroids (though this picture doesn't show that very well).
The V move looked good (for us) at first glance, but after further inspection, we didn't like the looks of this pin rock right in the middle of the runout to the crux. There was a very skinny slot left of it, and a possibility of going right, but not too much water heading that way.
It is in the center of this photo, after the water heads back right. It looks like a fan rock now; you can't go over it, must go right.
After we lapped that, we walked a bit of the middle of the rapid, and headed downstream.
There were some fun III+ / IV- rapids throughout, and a bit of flatwater, but nothing too long. We took out after the pedestrian bridge, 4-5 miles from the put-in.
Overall, it was worth it from Boulder. The scenery is awesome. The top IV rapid is really fun, and worth lapping many times. The top V looks awesome, and was very tempting...not today. The bottom V+ looks nuts. There are some fun rapids in the middle sections, and the weather couldn't be beat.
