Lava Falls ledge hole Double Disaster epic carnage fail TR !!!!!!

I hiked out at Havasu and our swappers took the oars on my Aire 143D (which I ran the meat of every rapid till Havasu btw). Keep in mind I had not flipped and my little tiny boat in the 22K Grand 'ol Colorado (no tides) was sticking the biggest lines you could take (left at crystal, right at granite and hance, center into hermit socD Horn etc). I warned the hiker that my boat would not sneak and if he tried it would be the end...enjoy




by the way if you would like a TR about the hiker swap at Havasu (which went OK) let me know I will continue the post.

not that it matters, but was your boat first or 2nd? 1st boat botched that as hard as is possible. 2nd followed like a lemming. I assume they both scouted?

Any damage?

Was he doing a Brown Claw going into it? I had to watch three times, I have not seen anything so funny in a long time.

my boat went in there first. Luckily I had rigged her 3 days prior and Bubbles held almost all her gear...even the P-cord oar tethers held. There was some frame damage (2 or 3 of the T's basically blew up) but Gary's frame from rowframe.com had the double rail system and held together....not sure if you counted but it was maytagged at least 5 times in the hole. Only one ammo can (it was a captains access can) that was lost, get this though it opened in the caos and the stuff in it floated and was recovered for the most part.

Sammy was second and I have no idea what he was thinking, he actually has some river guide experience and water knowledge. The guy rowing my boat, well, not so much OBVIOUSLY!

I can't believe they both went right into it like that. I saw a vid once of a boat getting chundered in there once and coming out missing its frame.
