New Rapid Beta, Yampa Warm Springs

Does anyone have beta on the Yampa River Warm Springs rapid?

Looks like it went through a big change late last year.

Warm springs

We just got off the Yampa. 1st through the 7th hit warm springs on the fourth or fifth day all seemed fine. You'll still need to scout to get your bearings on lining up. Before you actually enter the rapid.
New rocks fell near the old first hole. Making that hole abit bigger. Rest of the rapid stayed the same. So a really large flush could change it again. Lots of snow in Steamboat when we traveled back through. Time will tell.
I took some footage. I'll see if I can post it after editing it.

Well if your gonna go. Go w/ the flow.
