I'll put a blog up later today but just wanted to give a quick update in case any kayakers in this awesome fucking state want to change their plans for this weekend.
Yesterday, the Routt County River Enforcement posted a pic of a first D on the Roaring Fork of the North Platte:
This was a serious hike in with some awesome potential above Bitch Slap Falls (picture above). Bitch Slap Falls has a tough 10-foot lead in--tough to get a boof before leading into the 22.
Yesterday afternoon, we stomped A.C. Slater Falls (Saved By the Bell) on Slater Creek in the northwest corner of Colorado near Baggs, Wyoming. We've been looking at this falls for a couple of weeks. Clean-as-can-be 30 footer with a 20-foot sliding lead-in. The beauty here is the whole creek is sweet. There's 2-8 miles of awesome water to be had but we need some help cleaning it out. It's on National Forest land. Not much wood. Go up there this weekend camp, and check out Routt County's answer to OBJ. Right below the 30-footer is a nice Class IV+ We're as suprised as anyone that these haven't been run. If someone knows anyone who's run these, our apologies. If not, yeah for us, and everyone else who gets to enjoy the beauty of exploring with a kayak.
