5 of us ran the Big South this weekend starting from the Poudre Lake headwaters on the Continental Divide. The level fluctuated between 1.8-2ft over the course of the weekend. This is a great level for the BS and a good time was had by all.
The run was mostly clean of wood, except for 1 riverwide log (with branches) above Cool World, and another riverwide log in the top half section of Tubular Balls. We took out after the first rapid of The Rush, just upstream from another riverwide log.
In addition to the wood, there is also a rope that we lost while bagging a swimmer in Fantasy Flight. I believe the rope snagged somewhere on the bottom of river in this rapid. We had to let go of the rope after it snagged around our swimmer's neck. The rope vanished once our swimmer freed himself of it. Sorry and beware when running this rapid.
