When you make the move from right to left you bust through a lateral-looking thingy and right on the other side of it there is some funny water caused by water shooting in from between the rocks in the middle and on river left. I hit that funny stuff at about 2000 cfs and it spun me around backwards and instead of focusing on the left bank and getting out of there I crapped in my pants and fell into the hole. I ended up swimming almost a mile while focusing intently on surviving. I'm so scared of that hole now that I don't think I'll ever run it again.

You can run right of the hole...but it is definitely a move to make that happen. Kyle McCuthen did it in his quarter final heat and went from 4th to 2nd. It was a sweet line. BUT his second attempt in Semi's didn't work and he took a nasty beatdown and swam. He is featured in the teaser clip (red boat)

In addition to Kyle's beatdown, he said that he had to try like 3,4 or 5 times to get his hands to his sprayskirt just to get out of his boat. If your being trashed so hard that it takes that many times just to get a hand on the loop, id say that it is one hell of a nasty hole. Plus I was running saftey, and watching those guys drop in, or get sucked in and dropping into the hole was gut wrenching.
