Wood Issues in USB


I just got off of a USB run and their are a few new pieces of wood.

The tree in gash has shifted and looks like it will break loose any day now.

There is also a sketchy log in Grand Piton. It is in the drop after you go around the logs to the right and then left. You can get by it if you run the far right channel. It's hard to see so be careful.

Also there are a number of dangerous pieces of wood a ways after RIMBY. All of the logs are on the left.

The eddies above s-turn and RIMBY are getting scary. There are eddies above the usual eddies, that are a little more friendly.

Have fun! It's just getting good!

Is the rumor true that everything pretty much washes out above 600 cfs?

"It's just USB - not like it's the Zion Narrows or anything."

Super sick. Can't wait to hear the details.
