Hell's Gate run added to riverbrain.com

A few us did a run from Christopher Creek through Hell's Gate canyon in AZ last weekend. Back when Eddyflower was accessible, Tom and Christian had a nice write-up about Hell's Gate, but besides that, which currently is lost, I found information about the run extremely hard to find (fortunately in lieu of Eddyflower, we had Tom). Will try to add some photos as time permits - we didn't take a lot since we were trying to move fast.

I added some information to River Brain based on our run:
Tonto Creek - Hell's Gate Canyon - River Brain

I also added another account of Christopher Creek, even though there's already good info out there:
Christopher Creek - Christopher Creek - River Brain

The contiguous stretch of Christopher Creek all the way through Hell's Gate to Gisela gives you around 30 miles of continuous pool drop creeking which easily justifies 3 days on the river. It's a pretty unique stretch.

Nice write-ups. You remember a hell of a lot more from those runs than I did. Glad someone was paying attention.

River Brain is certainly coming together! I have been entering missing info and have found that, although it isn't entirely intuitive, there is a ton of unique information that has helped me plan trips. More importantly, they are willing to create features to benefit everyone. I made a few suggestions and was promptly contacted, thanked, and asked if they were accomodating. I suggested, and recommend, you take advantage of the feature which allows you to create your own River Log which will allow you to keep track of your adventures by date, runs, and vertical feet in a searchable format. If a run isn't in the database, it gives you good reason to create it.
