black rocks to Cisco in one day?

Is it doable to go from Black Rocks (in Ruby canyon on the Colorado, after the Loma put-in) all the way through Westwater canyon to the take-out at Cisco in one day? I don't have a Belknap's, so if anyone could help volunteer distance, time and experience, it would be helpful. THanks.

I've done it. It was a fairly long day, even at relatively high water (~20k), but it wasn't terrible. I think you are looking at about 25 miles, give or take.

It's pretty doable - just get an early start, obviously gotta stop at westwater to check-in
