2.9 definitely seemed boney. lots of little sleepers in literally every rapid. i would like to see it with another couple inches for sure.

kyle, we did the saturday-drive & sunday-paddle/drive thing the other week (from freakin' wyoming!) & it was pretty easy as long as you have a spare driver in the vehicle. if you wanna go creeking real bad, then you just make it work.

Embudo first timer

Embudo first timer looking for someone who has run it before and doesn't mind having a tag along. I live in Salida and should have the whole weekend open.

Is it at a good level for a first timer?

Mainer and Harvey, please give me a call asap. 303-918-7546. Still making plans. Can we team up with your group Harvey? It's me and Fred Zachrel (however the hell I spell his last name).

Trying to decide soon...

How does this run compare to the upper T box? Harder or easier? More or less risk/commitment? Scoutability? Thanks

I would say that the upper taos box and embudo are similar in overal difficulty but have completely different characters with completely different hazards. I think the Embudo (at this level) is only slightly harder than the upper box, but lacks the scary sieve factor. Mostly the challenge with the Embudo is knowing when to stop and scout as it is so incredibly continuous. It would be super easy to blunder into the biggest rapids if you don't have a guide. Of course now that I am super broke and won't be driving down there it is guaranteed to go off this weekend!
