What he said. Did it a few weeks ago with a boat load of kids at 600-ish in a 14 footer oar rig. It's really slow, so plenty of time to read and run and get the lines, even if you don't know them. If you know them at all, piece of cake really. We went Ruby Mountain to Stone Bridge and I don't recall anything being terribly difficult. Even Pinball and Raft Ripper at that flow wasn't that bad. In fact, I'd say Widowmaker was the most technical (but still very slow with plenty of time to make the required moves) of them at that flow if memory serves.
Never thought I'd run it at even 800 in an oar rig until a couple of years ago. Then I thought I'd never really want to run it at 600 hundred until a few weeks ago. 400? Maybe! 200? I have a mini-Max for that. LOL
