I am not scaring any one out of that area, the land use issues from the mid 1980's and the crowds that use to surfice there on the weekens are long gone, however the severity of that spot still remains. Many of the drowndings were from young party going-cliff jumping folks, I am not aware of any kayakers that have died. I am simply giving any one that might swim upstream of that spot ample notice of the potential risk.
If you are in the area, need anything, dont feel threatened by my gun totting uncle. He is the only Full time resident of Dome Rock (the small town 4 miles upriver of Waterton). His name is Dave Merrill, with his appearance aside, he can be a very valued help, and one of only a few people with telephone access in the canyon.
