I paddled the Clearwater with Keck and the Gilman crew last year. That is by far one of the best runs ever. Gotta love 400+ fpm, but no drop over 5 feet. That is steep my friend and there is nothing but horizon line after horizon line in there.
Be sure to have someone in there with you that knows the lines or you will be in there for DAYS!
It's not the toughest, but certainly one of the best.
Oh yeah... that is one run I didn't swim in for 07!!!
