Go right of the hole right 5 yards prior to the true lip and you'll be laughin as you fly over the meat and stomp that sucka. Won't even get your mellon wet.

Only portaged tunnel once. It seemed like the thing to do at the time. Go with your gut. . .

Tommy Hillike (at high flows), Tom, hobie, Tim K, me and a thousand other great class V boaters have swam out of that hole - it's almost a right of passage for a Colorado boater. Just hope you're lucky enough to have footage!

I usually tell people to just have left angle as you go over tunnel, always has seemed to work for me.

I also think that 1200 is so much better than 900 on gore, at 900 there are a lot of rocks just under the surface of the water that can bite you in the ass.

I'd also say just plug tunnel under the rock on the left, that is the most interesting line to me, especially when you piton the rock under the rock... haha

LMAO - I totally forgot about the Crazy John line. Thanks for reminding me.
