Impressive! Very impressive. I've always wanted to take my mini-me down there.

I've run #2 a few times, but not many. I've also gotten stuck on magnetic wall.

One of our other guides ran #2 every time since it meant he didn't have to worry about getting stuck on the wall.

I've seen too many boats get into trouble with the Magnetic wall to mess with it at lower water. I try to hit the right lateral and then get the hell away from the wall.

I agree with basil we just paddled from little d to cisco yesterday and it was pretty much a perfect level. Every move and set up was easy to make and the wave trains in staircase are still very big and consequence free.

I'm not sure if the right line is there for kayaks yet in skull, was pretty hard to see.

SITM seemed a lot more like a horizontal breaking wave then a v-wave running it yesterday. You could kind of skirt it on the right edge, but it was very straight forward lining up for the big meat of the wave in the middle. Not really many sideways laterals to throw you off line.

We floated the entire stretch after the rapids and still didn't take terribly long - was about 6-8 beers worth in length for me, not sure what that was time wise.

6-8 beers was the equivalent of about 3 hrs of total float the last 6 miles.
