Our group is meeting at 10:00 at the October hole, if you want to join. I would consider this Run a III/III+ for top part (Shelly's) and II+/III- in spots on the lower. So this is not a continuous creek that you maybe expecting. Boulder Creek 4 mile or clear creek can give you that continuous III-IV, if that is what you are looking for.

Just a quick update on the footbridge. I spoke to the land owner today and he is fine with boaters portaging on the 36 side of the river and putting in just after the bridge where he parks his vehicles. He was pretty cool about it but he did ask that we not portage on the river right.

That's nice. The foot bridge portage all the way up to the road and around the corner on Saturday was damn annoying. It looks like they're prepping to put in a real bridge this summer, anyway so it shouldn't be an issue after this season hopefully.

And the pine tree death strainer is in the last "mini gorge" before Apple Valley bridge, not directly visible from the road but easy enough to spot it downstream and eddy out. Just look for pine tree branches pointing the wrong direction downstream. Eddy/portage on the right.
