How Low will you go: Numbers / Royal Gorge

So how low can Pine Creek / Numbers / Royal Gorge be run in a 12' cat?

I've run PC/Numbers down to 550 and RG down to 500, but it seems I need to graetly lower my standards or stay home.

I have commercially rowed a 13 foot hyside down RG at 212 cfs. It goes and is fun if you are open to a low water run in a cool place.

Most commercials stop running Numbers when it goes below 350....although I have seen a few run it at 320-330. I have seen privates take 9' rafts down it as low as 180. Personally, I have kayaked it to 119.
