So speaking of Cross Mountain, it hit 900 a few days ago. Thinking about hitting it this weekend. Think it will be free of ice dams and big scary ice ledges? Supposed to be almost 60 in Steamboat Thurs and Fri. I ran it last year at like 370 so its got to be a little more fun now.

The saddest part is that I keep opening this thread thinking someone is going to tell me about some secret new river in Colorado that I've never heard of that's full of water and clean boofs all winter long.

It's real low, by adding Granite, Lake Creek, Clear Creek, Cottonwood Creek and Chalk Creek I come up with 112 cfs.

The Salida gauge is reading 155 cfs, so it's somewhere between the 2.

Ran it a couple weeks ago at a slightly lower flow and everything went except the last move around 4x4 rock at the end of Pinball. 90% of the water is going into a sieve. I managed to get vertically pinned in it and swam....

Zoom was very rocky and different than I had ever seen it. Staircase went fine, Widow Maker was actually easier and we found a new line through Raft Ripper that I didn't know existed.

Thinking of just playing around in library hole in clear creek. Anyone know if you can do anything this low. I know rodeo hole is too low, but you can usually get into library at lower flows. I need to get out on the water and am happy playing in ripples at this point.

Library no good

It's still like 40 cfs. Library isn't even surfable. The spot below library might be doable. LOW water in clear creek still....
