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!!!

I like boating IV+ to V-, with some V thrown in. Had my first summer in CO in '07; got lucky on some runs (managed to sneak onto OBJ, natch) and backed out of a couple for lack of experience (Cheeseman, Vallecito). Was in CO Springs last summer, but now I'll be based in Denver.

I want to get a lot of the front range stuff in, with lots of after-work runs if possible. If all is going well, would love a Big South trip. Still need to hit Bailey and Gore. Would love to do more funky runs like Henson Creek.

Gear: meh. I need a new sprayskirt. Drysuit would be nice, but they're pretty dear.

Definitely not as hard core but..

Last year I was a class III with some IV like middle narrows boater.

Want to make my way up to lower narrows. Upper North Fork of the Poudre to filter plant has always sounded like fun. Spencer Hights? Grande in Sept-Oct. Costa Rica in Oct-Nov. Then south to the Fu!

My new Superfun is the only playboat that I fit into. That will change my goals.

Maybe pimpout the outfitting in my prijon rocket.

Upgrade the raft setup.

Hmmmm Spring run-off....

Oh yea,return to Hayduke the new poudre reservoir.
