This thread is gettin better every second! First Lake Creek stoke now the BV saliva thing..
The last time Harv and I went up there I broke my paddle and ran Nimby with some 90 deg off set thing... The fact that this run is roadside is also a big plus for me. When you break a paddle or dont feel it the road is all of 100 yds away..
The best part about Lake is that this year the upper stuff is going to go off for a long time.. Or IMO we will see 1200 + cfs for 3 maybe even 5 weeks.. I like the upper stuff almost better than the lower, the fun factor is super high and the pucker factor is kinda lower than it would be if you ran the big 4..
Harv you are right about the paralyzer it is a big rapid. Most days I run Nimby, Brains, Paralyzer, then walk Kiss me, and if the flows are above 450 or so when we hit the lowhead dam.. Then I am ready to shat my pants.. The Caldron is a scary rapid..
Another shot of the paralyzer at a low flow for perspective on the size of that thing.. Pretty sure that is Kev gettin ready to fire it up!
