Best camp below bogans (really troy) is at 46 01'19.62 N by 117 10'09.28 W River right.
Its BLM, you can hike up the hill. The cliff across the river is a beautiful sunrise view. When hiking the Ronde do not approach the sheep dogs. They will kick your ass. They are not to be trifled with. Also watch for snakes in the sunny morning spots. The whole river washes out. The narrows are an easy right of center working left after the med size standing wave. Or just right down the middle. It will only take 3 days to go from Minam to Heller. Go way slow above troy if you want to stretch it out. Like camp at the first spot you find.
