Cutch is right about that takeout. Watch the poison ivy.
I'm pretty sure that Cutch is describing the Guardian. Mandatory Thrash is what I erroneously described above as Red Rocks, and is further downstream (I'm bad with rapid names sometimes- Red Rocks is right after). The scout on river right at the Guardian that he described is a very good idea, although you really can't see the far right line I mentioned in my previous post. That center line that Kyle describes becomes very meaty at these flows- you're pretty much gonna find about 2000 cfs running through there as I imagine that not much is coming down Hermosa right now, and most of the additional flow is coming down Cascade and the other tributaries.
Since I no longer live in Dgo
I haven't seen what the flow is doing lately. Either way, the Box will be pretty big right now- there is a sign at the takeout, but catch every eddy as you see the train tracks bear away from the river. You do not want to accidently go too far.
Durangotans- can we get a ruling on the names of the rapids?
