I once checked the Bailey gauge and it read 157 so we did it. It turned out it had dropped to 145 while we were on the way. I think from 145-175 it feels about the same. East Coast-style, no doubt, but I'll be there as soon as the gauge hits that level. The run is about an hour longer, but it's a great into level for Supermax.
Flip side is that the boof line at Deer Creek is gone and you have to run the mank (piton rock on the left, pin rock hidden in the foam on the right of where most of the water is going - run just right of the piton rock). Lots of folks won't go below 225, which is where the fun really starts.
Join up, suckas.
