Yes, I ran it at ~100cfs in 2002. This summer/fall I ran it well under 500cfs but I do not remember the exact level.

Guardian is easy
Red Rocks has a fun boof (little air)
Manditory Thrasher lands on a funky rock but no big deal

I would think about wearing elbow pads, I bashed my elbow on some unnamed rapid last time I ran it. Lots of pin potential so I would give it a IV below 500cfs.

Hope this helps.

yes, and its fun. there are some super good boofs. turns kinda creeky at low water. i'm pretty shure i was in there at around 350cfs really early last spring(pretty shure purg was still open). there is a sweet slot move in (i think) manditory, you go river right to left. went in there several times an low low water and had a blast. the water was super clear with a kinda green tint. the low water makes it not so full on so you can really enjoy the vertical walls of the box, kinda holds a special place in my heart.

i'd say go, if for nothing else to have something to do.
if you do i bet you will have fun and want to go again an other day.
the hike is always a b&*ch but worth it IMHO.

go get some,
