Yea the mythical paralyzer middle line. It seems to get a taker every third year or so. I only know of a handfull of middle line runs...
The deal with the middle line is that it takes over 1000 cfs for even the thought of a attempt. Also at say 1200 there is no eddie between the paralyzer / kiss me so it all becomes one rapid. If you are goin to try it I would say 1200 - 1400 is the prime level... Others may not think so but at 1000+ cfs the middle is the only line in the paralyzer that goes.
At these flows the lateral commin off the river right wall in kiss me is bigger than a bus and if you screw it up the only escape from the hole on the bottom left in either via the cave or undercut.. That is if you could get out of the hole and I would say that there is a 89.5% chance that you would just cycle in there for hours.... Also where this hole is located it is almost impossible to set up a rope so you guessed it you are on your own - no way to set saftey...
Also no margin for error in the top half as even a boat width or less off line and you would get the slam of your life - pry break one or both legs.
Yep scary fo so....
