Crystal Gorge worth it?

So it's prolly going to peak at 240 cfs around 7 am tomorrow then tank. I've never run it. Is it worth the trip? Is the inner even an option at 200 cfs?

The inner will still go if the wood situation abides. The upper will be super boney but still goes. If you've never been there it's well worth the trip. One of the tightest places you can be in a kayak.

Should we put on early or does it matter?

The gauge is way down stream but 200 is pretty low. The inner is stuffed with wood per SLEE. I don't think it is worth it at that level unless you like grinding rock

Put in a few hours before the peak. 240 definitely goes. 200 will be somewhat ridiculous but if your are in CO you got nothin better to do until 2013.

I may have done it at 160. It was still fun.
