I. Was behind that rig about a day. The Rangers told me that that incident busted up their steel frame. The other boat in my party did the same exact entrance in an 18 foot raft and did not flip

When it started getting regularly commercially rafted by people with absolutely no experience. Does that hole flush? It looks like it to me. If it was a true "keeper" then it would be V. The potential for long nasty swims are very real, but by the standards I was taught that is IV/IV+ water.

I certainly could be wrong. I see the WWSR rates it as V- for swims at 40k+....
