I've rowed a 14' cat through there and it's doable but very tight (as stated above). I've rafted Alpine Canyon and I can say Cross is way more technical... That said, if she is comfortable on Alpine and interested in something technical, it's fun!

What size raft are we talking about? IMO I'd say a raft smaller than 14' would be better.

Cross is not nearlay as big as Alpine Canyon, other than Osterizer/Mammoth Falls and Snake Pit. It is however much more technical, but is very short. 1500 to 3000 CFS would be a great level. When reading the level check the Little Yampa Canyon flow because the Cross Mtn./Yampa Canyon one includes the Little Snake flows that are actually below Cross. Be careful and have fun!
