For all you sik birds, Paonia is spilling

Hit the spillway this morning with 300 cfs coming over the top.

I'd love to see someone run the spillway in a Hammer again? Bo, where are you?

How do you get down to the spillway? I've inspected that before and it seems like you'd have to do a 20 foot boof to a flat concrete cache basin before actually sliding down the spillway.

What happens to people when they run that spillway? You must be doing like 50 MPH when you hit the bottom. I've only seen the footage of a different spillway being run in The White Album before for visualization.

"Off the Deep End"

It was the Loaded Gun movie in 2000 that first publicized the spillway, I think it was Sam Drevo that ran it in a big old Mongoose type boat, he caught 8 feet of vert and 30 horizontal while doing an airborne roll after he hit the hydraulic at the bottom. To run it I think he repelled onto the concrete shelf with his boat tethered off. Its highly illegal. Check out "Off the Deep End," if you can find it, its one of the first shots in the movie.

When bo and sam ran it, they ran the drop onto the shelf and surfed it out onto the spillway if I remember right. Also bo went first in the hammer. nice.
