Just thought I'd follow up in case it's helpful for others. Water was higher than I expected (around 250). Ran Fractions to below Frog Rock. White Mile section was technical and fun for so little water. Got pretty shallow in spots below that but boatable the whole way.

If you take a beginner down this run fatigue may be the biggest issue. My partner did fine on the harder stuff at the top but by the time we got below Frog Rock she was getting worn out and the swims began. I think the combination of typical beginner over-paddling and a technical run did her in. We ended up calling it a day and hitching to town. 4th time on the river - I think she did great.

Cloudy but beautiful day and we had the run to ourselves.
