RG's Clear Creek

Does anyone have first hand experience with the Clear Creek above Creede? I saw a description that it’s a class III run. It looked like it had at least 200 CFS yesterday.

I am talking about running from below the falls on the forks to Hwy 149.

theres two forks that come together, each one having a large, and unrunnable falls on it. theres supposedly some big falls (the geology in that region is prone to large (40-50' ish) ledges, and then some flat out to the highway. it was on my list to hike when i get back to CO, if someone gets in there before me, take some pics and spread the word!

I looked at the falls just above the confluence of the N and S Forks yesterday. The S is small and its single falls land on rocks. The N has a series of vertical drops in a slot canyon. All might be doable except for one which falls thru a boulder sieve.

It looks possible to get access to the canyon without ropes below the confluence on river right. The topo map shows another steep stretch before the highway. The flow had dropped to boney levels (~100 CFS).
