Gnar E, you can have Tensleep at 2 feet and KEEP IT. We drove that distance with only that run in mind, got there and the gauge was 2.1. It took 3 seconds to make my decision and I had to burn my pants, underwear and socks after volcanic shit shot out my ass. We camped there (running other fantastic stuff in the area) for two days and no f'n way was I getting on that thing. It was fricken ROARING to the point of hearing boulders tumbling.
Without a doubt I will be there, but not above 1.3(ish). Even at that level eddies are far in between.
Hey, just FYI, the lower half of TS was still really crank'n at 2", but wider, and more features to work with beyond straight down. For anyone wanting to give that half a shot (if it gets above 1.5) it was a gas.
If you pull that off I want to be there.
