We actually ran into the RiverMaps people (they do the super nice maps for the Grand, Lodore, Deso, etc), out there Labor Day weekend, and they're working on a map for the whole thing from Pumphouse to Dotsero. Pretty sure they were skipping Gore Canyon.

Interesting re: the RiverMaps peeps. I've noticed the guidebook void too and planned on putting something together this winter. Won't be tough to improve on the BLM .pdf.

Pinball Rapid is below Pinball Boat Ramp, under a bridge. It is 38 miles below Pumphouse, 9 miles below Catamount, 9 miles above Horse Creek. It is a big right to left move at this level, and you should use the eddy behind the last guard rock to help this move.

Thanks for all the input, it was definitely boney. Ran center, move right then hard left once past the two rocks and stayed left of the trestle abutment. Had one boat hand for a minute or two on a rock then spin off.

I do every thing the little voices in my head tell me to.
