Nice work!

You almost need to subtitle the rapids since they're almost unrecognizable at that level. Applesauce looked meatier than tunnel. Who woulda thought.

Banks, with all your high water runs this year, what do you think is the stoutest level? Looks like some lines might open up at higher water that aren't there at lower levels?

The stoutest level for Gore is when it's an ice gorge with caves and shelves everywhere, and the temps are freezing. 1600-1900 are the terrible teens, the rocks are still there to bash you. It keeps getting bigger and more stout as the water increases. When the eddies have about a thousand cfs moving upstream it feels very stout.

The entrance rapid @ putin rock becomes awesome and significant around 3000.

Applesauce is nasty around 5000 and goes better with more or less water.

Gore meat is ugliest between 2100-2800 holes are stacked and staying on line is difficult. The sneak's hole becomes bigger and feeds more into ginger. The line to the right of the sneak rock comes in and so does a line to the left of the meat.

Pyrite down the middle becomes nasty around 3000, the line way to the left comes in.

Rapids between pyrite and tunnel change often and get huge at flows above 3000

Tunnel is hardest between 800-900

Stuff between tunnel and toilet bowl becomes class 5ish above 2500

The meat of toilet bowl becomes hardest around 2300-2800 it's runnable higher or lower.

Kirshbaum's is hardest around 1900, That is also when the runout becomes more stout, as the water increases more, that rapid becomes the longest with the highest swim count for high water this year.

The next rapids come into play above 2000cfs and are really fun.
