Portage possible for Pinball Rapids/Bob's Bridge in upper C?

Title pretty much says it all. Can I get around Pinball Rapids in the upper
C if it looks to sketchy for the 5 year old in the tandem duckie?

Just floated Pumphouse to Rancho yesterday and there's nothing a 5 year old should keep you from. Yarmony is gravy; go left, eye of the needle doesn't exist at this flow 'cept for one rock you 'gotta go left of. Float it. It's basically a sleeper at this level. I guide it commercially often and have never heard of 'pinball'.

Pinball is not on the upper C, it is south of Burns towards Dotsero.

Pinball is far below Statebridge. You could portage but really no need to, it would be a good hike. I would portage rodeo though, which is easy to do if you are actually going down that far as it is before pinball.
