Real Manns Creek

Could anyone give me some beta on Real Manns in WV? It's something that I've always wanted to paddle but have never even gotten around to even scouting. Is it really the hardest run in WV? Just some ideas of what the rapids are like, anything of significance. Also, is it more or less pool-drop between the big drops? Thanks!

It's the hardest run I've done in WV. Especially if you run Energizer - the main rapid that consists of multiple boofs and slots, including the main crux that is a twisting slot where you really don't want to flip. There is one mandatory portage around a horrible toiletbowl style sieve, and one unrun rapid that doesn't look clean at all. It's low volume and ultra steep, and if you continue into Manns creek it will likely be very high down to the New. There are some very cool, unique rapids in there though that few have been down.

Check out the videos on youtube. Plove has a good one. I've walked it when it was dry, but couldn't tell ya how it boats. Get a guide or start early and assume everything is undercut.

Payton only has vids of Manns, not Real Manns. Real Manns is Manns Creek proper, and comes into Glade creek on river right about 1/3 of the way to the New from the Grist Mill. When people run Manns, they put in on Glade, and it becomes Manns at the confluence. Very few people have been down Real Manns - so video of it is rare. Wet Ones has shots of it from 10+ yrs back...
