Yo! Fired up the box for the first time of the season (at least for us)

A bit manky but it is minimum flows and everything goes.

There is a full TREE 2 drops ABOVE mandatory. It is easily seen at this level and a river right run (which is normal for this rapid). If you don't see a gigantic tree 2 drops above mandatory be VERY AWARE as it could be in mandatory or later.

There is also 2 more trees downstream from mandatory but none are an issue (1/2 way through the run on the right to left slide into wall you will see a branch sticking up, it goes there is no tree and it is straight up out of the water).

There is another LOG the second drop ABOVE the TAKEOUT, it was there last year on the river left shoot. It is still there and is a dangerous pin situation if you go to far right into it. Probably a very bad swim situation over there too. Plenty of ways around it so be aware and paddle safe.

have fun

I've never boated before, but I have posted a lot on Mountain Buzz!
