Northgate Canyon

What's the lowest you can run Northgate Canyon at in a raft?

I choose the road less traveled. Now where the hell am I?

I ran it 10 years ago in a paddle raft at 800 and it sucked so bad I still have nightmares about it. Wouldn't recommend it below 900 at all. Just my thoughts

You ARE a soul, you HAVE a body.

I've run it int 600's with a small cataraft, bony, but you can take small rocks down the center in a cat. I think there were a couple "fred flintsone" moments where a put my feet down between the tubes to help "navigate". In a regular raft it just isn't much fun below a grand.
