Little Thompson?

Noticed that the Little Thompson hit almost 90 cfs today. CRC says 125-150 cfs is recommended. Anyone run this? Any beta? Hard to tell from the CRC if its a portage with a some boating in between, or a creek run with some portages. Never looked at it, but it sounds interesting.

New Testament gives it 1 star: "I don't think it's been run since CRC2 came out in '99 due to lack of flow"..."Scout well for new wood and expect portages, as well as a few low bridges when this is running."
That being said, I'd be up for an exploration if it pops up. Give me ring if you want to check it out. Once again, thanks to KM and ES for the amazing work.

I only know of a few people who have run it. I think a crew with Jim Gill ran it first in the mid 90s and then a crew with Scott Young a few years later. I skied it in the winter to scout it a few years back. The first few hundred yards are going to be a wood fest afterwards it cleans up. The "tubs" area is certainly the coolest section of the run. It is basically carved out granite with mutiple small waterfalls and very narrow. PM me if you are going to do it.
