The Numbers

Anyone planning a trip down the Numbers section of the Arkansas on Friday? I want to take my 14 ft cat down it, haven't done it before, and would like to go with someone who knows it.
I am also wondering if it's already too low for a cat at the current water level. Any advice is appreciated!

My buddy put-in just above Number 4 last Saturday (~1,000 cfs) with a 14' raft with 3 paddlers (no extra gear) and they had a hell of time getting stuck on submerged rocks everywhere. Granted, they weren't an expert crew and no previous experience on that section, but just letting you know their experience. We are planning to do Royal Gorge on Friday, want to meet us there instead? ~4:30 at Parkdale?

Will it be your first trip down the Gorge? After hearing the beta from the other thread, it sounds a bit tricky, with nasty consequences if we don't know where we are.
