Big Joe is a blast of a rapid at 12k-ish. Two or three obvious lines exist with various benefits and outcomes. We took the rather clean line between the two holes with a minor move at the end to punch the small laterals coming off the right most hole. Boaters in the photo below took a more adventurous route that seemed like a blast. Was pleasantly surprised at how forgiving the Yampa was at flood stage. For so much volume it never felt pushy and we always had time to make our moves.

Ran it 4 days ago. new rock is on the right. Easy and fun run middle right past the big rock, and pull right at the bottom to avoid the rock at the bottom. Pretty easy run, and lots of fun.
