It's a long walk, but there is a "trail" aka slopeside scramble river left that comes out below the middle portion and before the last bit of drop that includes the undercut cliff river right. Should be able to pull over there okay. If not, it pools again just a little further. No cliffs, but it's around the corner so you can't see it from the scout point.

I dont know if its possible to walk around the rapids. For one, its a long walk, I didn't even walk to lower disaster bc it seemed really far away. Second thing is the water is so high that some of the scout trails were under water in sections. Third, there are areas that are impossible to pull a boat over bc the water is up into the vegetation. Fourth, There are lots of strange currents forming strong eddies and whirlpools that are hard to predict and get out of. I recommend staying in the main current to avoid problems. Also I think there are times where it is more dangerous to be scrambling over rocks and bushes than it is to run the rapids. Fifth, Why would anyone want to walk around the fun parts of a river trip?

Treswright3 you are awesome thanks for the very helpful post. I was thinking that a lot of the technical stuff might be washed out.

Just did it a week ago with some students. Rapids are more straightforward... Upper/lower disaster we let the kids ducky... No duckies on triplet or hells. Don't get into the right wave train at triplet... One of our boats had to high side on the bottom rock and it looked sketchy. Hells is easy and flushed... Lucifer is just a huge, awesome hit. Split mountain was huge and fun... Felt like the grand in spots have a good time. IMO it was easier than low water Lodore.

Good observation, and I agree with your flow comments. High water isn't always mean & nasty water.

Gates @ 9k

We have a trip launching on Monday 6/27.
Might need a guide/experienced rower for a boat.
We have the boat and gear but need a rower.
We've had some list changes as the water has stayed high and some have wanted to drop due to comfort level.
We've done it twice but at normal flows.
Never seen it high flows so any input or intel is welcome.
Thank you very much in advance.

Thanks,

Southern Gal -

Any new intel from your trip?
We launch 6/27 with kids.
Thank you very much.
