Pine Creek info?

What's Pine Creek on the Arkansas like at these flows? I ran Royal Gorge this year at around 450 cfs, and numbers at maybe 500 cfs. I'm not that familiar with the rating system, but I'm thinking numbers #5 and sunshine in Royal Gorge was getting really close to IV-. Is Pine creek a big step up from these runs?

It's probably a half step up, but it is much longer than either of those.

I think it's great fun. At these lower flows PC turns into something like a long Class III with a Class IV move at the end. The infamous hole at the bottom exists in a subdued version, but the current doesn't really push into it and it's easy to avoid. There are several great boofs to be had and the cux move is still interesting. Also, the whole thing is easy to scout and there are plenty of eddies.
Please take a look at my Photo Web Gallery.
I also have here some gear reviews (that I might update soon).
