Pumphouse @ 2700??

Has anybody done the Pumphouse run @ higher flows? A buddy of mine has a raftful of novices that he wants to take down there. Is it still beginner territory, or should he redirect?

I was there yesterday, still beginner territory. Like always, be careful, wear PFDs, and use regular common sense, though.

At higher flows Yarmony rock gets covered and becomes a huge 2/3 river-wide hole. Run it to the left and you should be OK. Scouting it may be a good idea.

Like Dave said, wear PFDs, and take all the standard safety precautions. Don't be complacent just because its Pumphouse.

That said - Have fun!
