If you are solid class IV, you should have no problems even at these levels.

A couple lines you might want to be wary of:

Ski Jump: Left-center to center, watch out for the big hole 2/3 of the way down on the far left, some sketchy rocks below it if you flip.

Dead Car: Far left line has a nasty rock towards the bottom. Flip in the hole above it, you'll make its acquaintance (broke my wrist on it)

Powerline: Left of the center rock at the top, move down to the right, then cut back left to center.

Screaming Left & Right, Pinball, Rock Garden: read and run, strong boof on the holes.

Last Rapid (before the take-out at Taos Junction Bridge): Left of center to center.

In General: This is volcanic rock, it's sharp and very abraisive
