Lots of camping to(fee and reservations at put in), you could for sure make it a day trip at this level but its nice to spend some time in the gorge. Right at boulder garden is the best camping spot and awesome fishing above boulder garden.
gunny gorge is fun, but its always seeing more and more users....hard to get some isolation in there.
have you looked at a multi-day trip on the ark? self support or car assisted, either way, you can rack up some serious river mileage fast. i knows not all IV and up, but could be fun.
is a multi day possible on the crystal? marble to glenwood or something? theres lots of camping around (at least up until the BRB, below.....meh) but barring the meatgrinder itd be a lot of iI with some IV and a V-.
multiday trips are possible on the taylor/gunnison but its all car camping, no isolation.
dont know what else, your criteria isnt exactly kosher to many results.....
