WW at 20k is somewhat easier than the "terrible teens". In over one hundred+ trips from 1200 cfs- to 34K, Skull is at it's nastiest in the teens, in my opinion. 20k is pushy, swirly, big and fast, but mostly rollers, laterals and eddy lines. Square up and go.

Westwater above 20K

My first three times down Westy were at 6k, 7k, and 6K. The next was at 23K and I had some concerns going in with my 14' Hyside. Not to worry-I agree with what has been said-there is a lot of washout and none of the rapids were any real problem. My cheif concern would be a swim in some parts because there are few places to scramble to shore. You could get to a rock wall and be pushed downstream for a mile and never see a shoreline of any kind.
