Fantasy Flight

On a related topic, I just ran the upper part of Big South for the first time and took a walk on Fantasy Flight. Pictures look like most people are running the right side on the entrance drop to that rapid? I was told the more popular line was back paddling and falling sideways into the left side of the entrance, but that line looked kind of stupid to me. What do most people run?

Most folks run left, and that line looks insane to me too. Now that I've watched about 30 descents of that left side and no carnage, I've decided it isn't completely nuts.

I still always run right.

Nice photo of Double Trouble. Finally, someone put the camera down at river level:

This is the first photo I have seen of Double Trouble that makes it look scary. The usual shots from the rim flatten it out and make me forget why I walk around that one.

As a person who has had a few missed lines on the left I will say it still looks better than the right. I have always had time to roll up and get straight before going over the final hole. I think if you had a bad line on the right the water is moving so fast that you would have less of a chance to roll up before dropping.
