Ah man, as expected, "Mountain Buzz" is happening. I already conceded that Waterton was a III+ with some IV consequences (which I truly believe it to be and didn't intend to express otherwise), swallowed my shame for the "class V boof" comment, and will shut up now and avoid future discussions on Mtn Buzz that may involve differing viewpoints since they really aren't that fun.
I've been around here long enough to know better. I still think a class V boater (which I am not and have no intention of being) can find challenging moves in a flooding Waterton that I (a class IV- boater) had no interest or business making (and didn't make) but that point was lost in the mention of the words "Class V" combined with "Waterton". The original post was to express enthusiasm about how much fun I had running it that day, contradict the idea that it was unrunnable posted earlier in the thread, provide some beta, and express some caution for those who have maybe run a few class III's that it probably wouldn't be for them. Between getting called BS for even running it on one hand, and invoking anger for calling it a class IV on the other, this has been interesting. We're good, I appreciate and enjoy the different viewpoints (but not personal attacks) and I really will shut up. I feel like we've beaten the dead horse sufficiently.
