JDHog likes to go first in tunnel a lot, we always make sure to tell him to, "catch the eddy on the right below." He never misses the eddy, but always seems to be standing there dumbfounded with his boat in one hand, paddle in the other.

Actually I usually drop my paddle so I can pull my skirt before I even get to the lip. My next trick will be to jump out of my boat before I pencil into the hole. My farmer john keeps me pretty comfy though...it's so badass!

Applesauce, Gore, Pirite, Tunnel, Toilet Bowl, Kirshbaum, and it would actually be 7 including Scissors...

Usual flow is probably 700-2400 cfs I am guessing... So high water would be above that... I did it twice in the last 2 weeks as it has been rising. Once at 3200 and once at 4500. Both times offered some of the best paddling I have ever had.

I wouldn't count toilet, scissors as rapids and apple sauce/pyrite are marginal rapids. So there is 3 maybe 4, lol. As for high water gore I haven't paddled it over 5000 since 97, I'm sure it fun.

Nah toilet bowl is a big hole so its a rapid if you run the meat of it... same with scissors... I've seen more swims from those two rapids than I have seen in all of Gore Rapid. Applesauce and Pyrite, though easier than the others, are still rapids at low water, and are definitely fun! And Pyrite becomes the scariest rapid on the river (for me) at high water... Scissors at high water gets a pretty flushy but I would say it simply gets moved downriver because there is a rather large, ominous pour over right after it. I guess its all just a matter of opinion, but I think Gore is well worth the flat water!

Now this is a classic example of the Edgeworthless Multiplier. Regardless of the run, Gary has run it higher than you and it has far fewer rapids than what you remember.

Anyone who likes Gore is a pussy. I'll only go there if I don't have time to drive out to Fossil Creek.
