I wonder if there is a gauge malfunction somewhere.
Cross Mtn shows 8700 and the Yampa at Deer Lodge Park shows 14,300?
Hard to imagine 5600cfs in the Little Snake River.

Had no idea the Little Snake ever hit those levels in a normal year.
Always seems it is more in the one to two thousand range.

Someone told me there are other Skull rapids also. Might as well tell Lebowski there is more than one dude.

Couldn't resist

The flip occurred on Sunday and the boat, badly damaged, was returned to the owners yesterday. The boat floated out of the Room of Doom on its own and made its way down to Dewey Bridge before being picked up by a diligent commercial outfitter. I suggested that they make a post on here in case others find any of their gear. I do have contact information for them and I would be happy to return any gear folks find in an effort to keep good river karma for all.

I live in Oregon. I've boated Westwater only once, more than a decade ago.

I knew exactly the spot that was begin discussed in the first post.

THE Room of Doom is only at Skull.

You Rocky Mountain/Canyon Country boaters enjoy all that big water.

So, here are a couple questions for all my provincial western boater friends... Which river do you think was boated first, Westwater or the Upper Gauley? Is one more worthy than the other? How many have been in the room on both rios? Which is more dangerous? IMHO, its the perfect name for both features...

Indeed, nowhere else can you find the Skull to rock-of-shock to room-of-doom combo!
