Westwater carnage last weekend?

Just got off the phone with the BLM office. They said Westwater was a big fun last weekend, water levels were below 1700 so the left sneak was shutdown in Skull. Everyone was having to go against the wall, causing lots of excitement. Also, Bowling Alley had a big hole that ate several people's lunches. They said, "Lots of flips by people who didn't think they would flip".

Anyone run it and have any tales to tell?

We had, I will let others comment with more detail if they are inclined. But at 1700 the right line at skull is tight. Lot's of highsides trying to bump and grind through the slot. I think we did have one raft manage to make it left of skull rock. Bring your little boats at this level.
