I've run it several times. Nearly died once being stupid and running it Solo. If your clean it's no problem. If your not it recirculates pretty hard. The time it almost got me my paddle broke and tore the rivets out of a crossfire. I escaped by getting deep and swimming as far as I could underwater. I'd love to see some video of someone crunching through it. Anyone have anything?

I've heard that the CB creeks have been run in a short raft (at least OBJ anyway). I also heard that one of the guys broke his leg while landing in the raft off the big one. I have no names, dates, or pics, so this could just be an old raft guide story.

I think LVM has shown that rafts can do lots of things they weren't ever intended to do, so it's entirely possible. Two of my friends ran Gorilla in a Topo Duo, and one of them also did Oceana in a Wavehopper - ridiculous stuff. You just never know...

p.s. i should add that both were successful runs. I hear it got ugly at Go Left and Die, though.

A couple of years ago, when they drained Ontero resevior, we ran 11 mile canyon with a 12' Vanguard and 9' mini-mee's. (around 600csf)
