HOLY SHIT!!!!!!!! one broken boat and lost paddle and a steep hike out.
it was amazing. not the full desent i planned for but more water would be needed after where we made it to.
we made it to the end of the 360ft mile section barely.
probably started the day with 80 cfs and finished with 120. the crux was the pic with the ice very deseiving from 200 ft above the river turned out to be the hardest set of drops in my life.... balls to the wall is its official name. the creek chokes up to 3 feet slot on left pouring down a set of double drops and ends with a 8 foot boof into a barely eddy. than 5 feet out of the eddy a 25+ footer on to nearly flat rock where a alot of speed(jefe) and a half pencil is the move of choice didn't even feel a hit and went smooth as butter. i fired up balls to the wall with aaron blue angeling behind me i catch the eddy inbetween and he fired on through i wait 3 seconds and peel out and style the drop. he's up side down and now we are in the same turbulant eddy. he's unable to roll( his first swim since learning to boat) and he's grabs on to the back of my boat and we get him up in to the cave so that he's out of the water. i try to peel out of the cave and get it on the 3rd time with the right timing of the surge and it ends with a clean 6 footer. he was able to 5.0 route out of the cave enough he got a good jump over the boil line and swimmed down to were we hiked out. sick portaged only 3 drops. one is probably a always portage and the other 2 needed more water. over all i would do it in a heart beat. pics should be coming soon. Alot of great micro creeking mank.
