Sick! Very well done. Can't wait to get in there myself. What were the flows in the video?

Love that tight little box

All the footage was the high side of low flow. All the overhead stuff was about 550-600 from last year and the head cam day this year was reading just above that. Seemed a slight bit lower though so not quite sure about the accuracy of such. Small difference and unless you are in there ALOT you wouldn't notice. Please remember access is ILLEGAL. ONLY go in with a local guide so as to not F it up for all. A new rock slide where we have to repel down may disuade possible new attempts. Really sucks decending now. Sketch.

Measured flows (guage) for this run are deceptive. Feeder creeks including Hermosa can totally skew the run's flow because of where the guage is reading Regarding access, Warren is right on the mark. There has been groups in the past less than "stealth" which has caused the owner of the property to be more vigilant. Please go with a local guide because if you don't know the way, there are sections where you are easily visible. The owner has brandished his shotgun on more than one occasion...

Hermosa Creek meets the Animas downstream of the Tall Timber gauge.

Nicely done Luke!

Who is the old guy in the red hat?

Just kidding. I'd recognize the bottom of that boat anywhere.
