If we're getting down to this level of detail, let's get it straight, the rapid's proper name should be "Needle's Eye." Notice the capitalization and punctuation?

I've heard it called "Eye of the Needle" and "Needle's Eye" interchangeably for about the last 20 years, and I can't recall even noticing the difference, much less being confused as to what rapid was being discussed.

I think the real issue can be summed up in this handy-dandy perspective enhancing cartoon:


Nothing in the world is more yielding and gentle than water. Yet it has no equal for conquering the resistant and tough. The flexible can overcome the unbending; the soft can overcome the hard. - Lao Tse

I wouldn't have anything to do with the kayaks unless they have some experience kayakers shepherding them down.

Blm map says "Needle Eye" so technically you're all wrong.
