People warned of the HI 5-O wave at funnel, followed by a lat on the right and a third wave in the middle. Those were easy to punch. Skull was huge, as the sneak on the left was replaced by an intimidating lateral. The run is to kiss the right wall with the bow and then hit the tongue backwards, but we decided to punch the left lat (which....again...was HUGE!!!!!). That being said, two out of three of us punched right through it and then had a simple rescue for the third boat that flipped. All-in-all it was a class III move w/ IV type consequences.
Really Fun....don't let them scare you off W-Water between 13-18K if you are somewhat used to reading and eating class IV.
