Easy class III, but with fast current and few eddies. Easy paddling, but gear would yard sale a ways.

Yeah with the consequences I would say though the moves aren't hard for class III, it's not a good run for those just getting into class III

What Dan and Craven said is basically accurate,but still it used to be standard step up from Deckers,Filter Plant,Lwr. NSt.Vrain ,SP and Boulder Crk. Town Runs,easier than Foxton or Waterton.The III+ the book says seems a little high unless it is cranking,I would say II-III skills wise III in terms of consequences..just run it with someone capable of chasing down your boat in the event of a swim..Tunnel 1 down is about the same maybe slightly harder but your boat will probably be saved at the play park if there are folks there.I f you have done well on those other runs you are probably OK.
