Now you're talking about the Wheat Ridge Daily section of Clear Creek and the drop down near Tennyson!
I've heard the drop at Wadsworth referred to as "Shopping Cart Falls." If you ever run it, I recommend a portage there as it's actually an aeration structure with chunks of jagged concrete embedded in the slide. If there's enough water to cover the concrete chunks, the hole below is massive and the ensuing swim shallow and manky with a 20' wall along river left and those Goddamn Russian olive trees (very thorny) along the right.
And cayo 2, if you want that Cuyhoga flammability, maybe check out the South Platte down near the Conoco refinery? Prolly want to leave the smokes at home for that stretch...
Urban boating at it's finest!
