How is numbers right now.

Looking into running numbers or another Class IV run. I would like get out to Colorado soon, and run some stuff, but would like to take it easy at first to get the feel of the water so I am not in over my head. I heard you can scout on Numbers, and walk if you want. Not saying I will walk, but would like to have that option. On that note anyone willing to lead me down if it is a good level.

Numbers is more like III+ at this level, with a couple of class IV moves, but it is continous. There are eddies pretty much everywhere, and at this level there is plenty of bank to scout/portage in the few prudent spots. There is good play still, and when combined with a Granite trip (with or without Pine Creek) it makes a fantastic full-day III/IV trip. If you want someone to show you where the rapids are, I would be happy to show you down...just give me a heads up.

Oh well in that case I would just read, and run it Are there any runs that would be a step up from that in the area. With eddyflower down it is hard to tell. When I come out I would like to get in some quality boating in

You could run Gore Canyon and make it more of a class IV if you walked gore and tunnel. Lots of really fun stuff on that run.

The Numbers are still a high quality run IMO, and you can make a lot of class 4 moves in there. It would be a good way to start a trip. If you're here next weekend Bailey is a step up and then a Gore light could work.

Okay sounds great Thanks for the advice on what runs to start with, and end with to make a fun trip that is worth the drive.

Sounds like you're looking for Bailey.
