Green River Narrows: 1st Vertical Mile

Check out Zach Fraysier's write-up of the 1st ever vertical mile on the Green River Narrows with Jeff West.

Eleven laps, nine triple crowns, and ten runs on the Gorilla!

Damn that's stout. Seems like probability would dictate at least one sketchy line at Go Left. Ditto for the monkey. I've done a couple North Fork VMs and the Green sounds a bit harder in terms of logistics and sketch potential. Then again, my third runs through Jake's and Nut were pretty loose.

So which vertical mile is tougher at normal flows: NF Payette (~2,000) or Green (~100%)?
