Westy vs the Daily

I was looking over the the rapid ratings on this website and it classifies Westwater as class III and the Moab Daily as class III+.

Is that accurate? I can't really imagine that's correct, especially not at these levels with Westwater in the Teens...


Hittle Bottom to BLM: The "Daily"

Could that be true, or are people from Utah just Utahrded?

Anybody have any info the Daily stretch of rapids? Looks like only White's rapid may need to be scouted.

I think the only thing on the Moab daily at these levels that would be a III would be White's. WW in the teens would definitely be more of a III+ with IV consequences.

Just my opinion

Westy is class lll+/IV with large eddylines, whirlpools and boils at high water. The Daily is big water class ll / lll at high water. The daily is very staight forward with some big wave trains and some strong eddylines in places but its easy to miss anything of concern by miles. Whites rapid is super easy big wave train if you go left, if you go right there are a couple of big nasty holes at the top at high water that could cause problems but these are really easy to avoid by running left, I dont think there is any real good place to get out and scout.
