Castle/Slaughter run Friday am

I hope everyone is having a good spring season. I have a friend coming up from Denver tomorrow and we are looking at doing a castle creek through slaughterhouse run in the morning, maybe around 930-10 meeting to set shuttle. I'm very familiar with Slaughterhouse but haven't been on castle before. Looking to see if anyone wants to join us and if there's anything new about castle this year (mainly wood) to look out for. Anything worth scouting up there, I've heard there are a lot of blind corners, but that (combined with any wood) is the hardest part of the run. I'd rather not scout every blind corner if we can avoid it. Thanks for any beta, greatly appreciated. If anyone wants to join post here or shoot me an email at My number is 970-673-6061, if anyone sees this at 9 am and wants to come with. I'm leaving basalt and have room for two more people and two more boats.

See you out there,

Please post a wood report after you run Castle. You can easily scout the two main drops at the same time. There is a trail on river right. The drop section is pretty short.

Looks like you should already be done, but for anyone else, there is a report of wood in Castle Ck in the Access/Safety forum.
