Hell's Canyon - Snake River - Experience Wanted


About 8 of us (mid to late 20s) are doing a trip down the Snake River from Hell's Canyon to Heller Bar in Mid May. We are looking for someone who has done the stretch from the Damn to Pittsburgh Landing a few times and might be interested in coming along for the first stretch.

We are all very experienced in the wilderness and outdoors either from military, EMT or similar. We also have done a bit of rafting but would still characterize our skill on the river as fairly new (between 10-20 trips). We are hoping to find someone who has done this stretch and would be interested in coming along to help mitigate some risk on those few bigger rapids in the beginning of the canyon.

All logistical functions have already been taken care of (rafts, gear, food, alcohol , etc.) so all you would have to do is show up.

If you are interested PM me.

If you need help with the shuttle:This outfit is the real deal. She will allow you to camp the night before at her place and even get you access to the Bar!!

This is a great trip, when in doubt "scout".

You should be okay if you scout before running wild sheet and granite. The scouting can be more dangerous than the rapids.
Time is like a river. You cannot touch the water twice, because the flow that has passed will never pass again. Enjoy every moment of life on or off the river. is offline   Reply With Quote
