Props to them

Congrats for making it through! That is freaking awesome, can't wait for the footage. They have heli flyover footage and go pro cameras... so this should be good.

While I love cat boating on 16 or 18footers, 'ridiculous' whitewater is best suited in Creature Crafts, that way you subtract the consequences from the equation. I've learned to feel comfortable when tumbled in holes (oreframing them). Wish I could have gone with you all. They said it was the biggest whitewater they had ever seen. Mike said they found the kayaker Jeff West that went in before them and were there to set up the heli rescue. He apparently made it more than half way through before they found him with a head injury.

What a twist on a first inflatable descent coming up on one of the most badass kayakers like that. Thanks for helping out with the recovery. My condolences to the family, friends and riverfolk. What a twist for a trip. Much love and peace to the river community. I didn't get the chance to meet you, but you will be greatly missed.

That is awesome. Who knows, maybe I'll get one of those things someday. This may be a dumb question, but I've always wondered how do they stay in the boat, especially when they're getting trounced in holes?

Creature crafters? So what? Plenty of driftwood makes it down that canyon without any portages and I can't see the difference between creature crafts and driftwood.
What is far more significant is that recently a great man lost his life attempting what would have been one of the most impressive undertakings the realm of whitewater has seen. I regret that I never got a chance to meet Jeff, and have infinite respect for what he was attempting. It's so tragic that it didn't end well.
Also, Doug Ammons put on the Stikine this year and got helied out? I don't know what to think about that.

Can't wait to see the footy of that shit in zed is big regardless off when you are in their.

A creature craft is rubber as well as a raft let's not get technical now they use to run it in composite boats, now plastic boats big deal. It's about getting in there and they did it props to them? And I'm sure it's not as easy as drift wood floating down a river you guys are lame

Some of you are too technical on your first d's. Should somebody ride a log thru and get first drift wood descent? Sick man

Caspermike, creature crafting the stikine is WAY easier than riding driftwood. Imagine, no seat belt! Driftwood descents of Site Zed, that would be next level. Creature crafts though? You can't even flip over!! Yawn. Also, as a detail all descents of the Stikine have gone down in plastic boats, no composites. However, I heard Jules and Kurt discussing how sick it would be in slalom boats...crazy racers.
