well thanks for all the advice, we had a great time, and no swims! skull looked tempting to get throttled in, but we skirted left. we ran sitm straight on from the left side, perpendicular to the lower hole with both rafts, right thru the meat with no worries, doncha just love cats?! I had no choice in the kayak but to go right into the hole, surfed about half a second, then played the up-down-sideways game for a second till I rolled. then paddled back up and did it again from the eddie!!
great times and bootiful weather, stayed at hades up on the tower.
quote for the trip: I've got something in my pocket, if you can guess what it is, you can have it back...
told by some guy who got out to suit up at our campsite while we packed up, seems he "found" our headlamp and thought it looked nice
