I have an April 18th launch. Could someone please tell me Where is the ramp? How far is the First camp? What is the run at "Skull" ? How far is it to cisco? Will there be wind? Any "BETA" would be helpful, I don't want any surprises. I'm not looking for an adventure, I need to know exactly what is going to happen every day!

Westwater has never successfully been run, so there is no information on it.

Knowing what will happen will take the fun from the trip. At Skull, I find being 1/3 of the river width on river right side is good.; bow pointed 45 deg to right; two hard pulls; prep for the one just below it. Not sure but the one below claims more of the unwary. Sat photos for the Ramp.

We just got off Westwater last weekend at 3700. Really fun. The rapids were like mini pool drops. If razor rock is what I saw, I threaded between the left wall and razor rock. I came in from the right. As for Sock It Too Me, I came in from the right and was able to enter is and have a fun ride. I wasn't pulled towards Magnetic Wall at all. After Last Chance, It was flatwater rowing to the take out. Really fun. I think I would've wore a helmet at this level, because the river is so shallow one may bonk the head off rocks if you flipped.

Good times
