Having dealt with multiple, very serious, and life changing injury's, as an emergency first aid provider, some of the most unfortunate things i saw, were caused by some one calling somebody a "pusy" or some type of peer preasure.
I have regreted it every time i have gone against my gut instinct to not do something.
Calling a boater a pusy for not running a section, when he has safety issues, is not what an adult that cares about his fellow boaters safety,does.
I think restrac made the right call in this situation.
I would run parkdale at a lower, more forgiving level, first, to get the confidence back. It is preaty mellow right now, for instance.
Three rocks is a dangerous rapid at high water, spike buck to, for that matter, know guides that have evacuated passengers with broken backs,(from 3 rocks river left), also a good one for cardiac episodes in older men, when ever i see a rapid that state parks places a back board bellow, i give it a little extra respect.
I run high water spike buck down the right, breaking the lateral off the right shore, at the top of rapid, is key. Most carn there, is from not getting right, those big holes in center have caused some nasty swims.
White water is not something to be terrified of, but it does deserve it's due respect, especially at higher flows.
Loose your lunch above 3 rocks, and later sharks tooth, are funner then s#%t at high water!!!
The only truly bad trip is the one where some one gets seriously injured, or does not go home.
Happy boating, and make good choices!!
