Where is Max pleasure? Ian the log is below all the steeps. the river is on a slow left curve as the boof approaches and has a short cliff on the right after the boof as the river bends back to the right. pretty close above supermax.

Maybe we could just start naming rapids by who's swam out of them? I'd guess we could cover them all that way.

Bailey is pretty well named, although I've noticed some people use different names (confusing). We really should have a consortium to name SSV rapids though. It gets really old trying to describe those: you know, the manky steep one that kind of turns and you have to move around some rocks.

Here's how I recognize it:
When I see a long stone wall (~50' long and 6-10' high) directly on the left and the river bends hard to the left after that, I know it's coming just around the corner. I know there's a lot of stonework along this river, but this is one of the bigger sections of it and it's below Trashcan, whereas most of the old railroad stonework is above SuperMax or adjacent with Trashcan.

If someone wants to do the run 1st time w/ no guide at high water, I'd wager that they can probably handle it. The hump creating the hole is visible from above and your instincts tell you to boof. Boofing left is just the safest bet, but center works, too, and it doesn't really line you up for going right anyway.

Damn it Gary, I was already picking out nice names for the class II shoals on bailey... Oh well, not everything needs a name, granted, but there are certainly rapids that could benefit from names.

Naming drops after folks who have swam them makes sense when its an exceptionally rediculous swim. Like the time Shawn lectured everyone about the hole right above tunnel on gore, and then promptly paddled right into it and was seen pulling his skirt before his head was underwater. That hole will always be Shawn's hole to me now, and all that call it that at will get a takeout beer on me if I'm there.

No one should be allowed to pull that shit. If you can't run the drop, don't put in until you're around it. I would let anyone walk the top and paddle the bottom over 600 though.

Force you would know about that sneak you dumpster!
