3 rocks/Spikebuck video?

There were plenty of people watching the carnage yesterday. Did anyone get video or pics? I had one nice run in 3 rocks...one dump-truck. Wouldn't mind seeing my own carnage.

I was in a 14er with myself and 7 teen paddlers. Normally, I feel comfortable with any level of skill for paddlers, but I couldn't make any line that I wanted to. My 1st 3 rocks line wasn't what I had planned. I wanted to sneak left, but the river only pulls you center. The other two guides had the same issue, but also had 16ers. I made it on my first run, but dumped my second. Many of the rapids are wave trains, Sharkstooth is a nice big one...but there are some enormous holes in Spikebuck (OSR and bottom ledge), Puppies (far left) and 3 rocks. (It is now a pour-over, and became one around 3000 when I had ran it last weekend.) Puppies tail is quite the boat flipper, too. Apparently, my boat disappeared when I hit bottom ledge in Spike...I'd love to see it, and someone was on shore filming.

I got some good stills of two echo flips and a USAFA flip, and some friends got video. Send a PM if you were with either of those groups and I can help get them to you.

I think it becomes one large hole around 2800.
