Is the Devil's Punchbowl on the Roaring Fork itself or on Lincoln Creek? I always thought the Punchbowl was on Lincoln Creek, and I am not sure if people have run any bits of Lincoln Creek. Certainly could
run some of it but without being sure I decided to leave it off. There is also another waterfall a few miles up below Grizzly Lake that looks marginally runnable too. As Lincoln Creek has yet to be established a "been run" I will leave it off the list.
Since the Roaring Fork gets boated (and the Grotto itself has been run with varying degrees of success) I will include that on the list.
Hanging Lake is on a tiny little stream that doesn't get boated so it isn't on this list.

I agree with you, Logan, in thinking Agnes Vaille is NR. I don't really see how that could ever be runnable. A 20-30 foot drop to a gigantic pile of boulders....So I left it off.
The Chalk Creek stuff I debated putting on here. The Cascades are tempting to include, and while people run the bottom 200 yards of Chalk to the Ark, has there been any missions to boat other sections? I think I will throw it on the list just because there is always the chance someone has boated parts of Chalk Creek.
Thanks for the updates! Thinking of making this into a pdf checklist, so any aspiring hucksters that want a nice checklist to tick off the falls and slides they've done they'll have a sheet for it. Thanks again everyone!!
