Left Hand Canyon going?

Has anyone been down left hand canyon this year? I hear they may have some water in there now. I have a beater boat I need to sand down on some rocks.

I ran it last Tuesday evening. Not sure if there was more or less water than what most people typically hope for, but it was plenty runnable.

Hey Dirk,
I paddled it w/ Kevin last night. It was my first time so it was fun for the new factor but it was too low... and I paddle stuff LOW. We were doing a lot of knuckle dragging and unpinning. It really wasn't even high enough to lap the crux rapid.

If it comes up with rain there is some wood to be heads up for. One mandatory portage about 150 ft. downstream of the putin... you can actually see the tree from the putin if you look far downstream.

There were a few other wood issues but we climbed/rolled over it while in our boats. Maybe that stuff would be nice and covered with water but it also could be a bit sketchy if it were booming. At the level we paddled it I think only GI Joe would end up getting stuffed under a log.

There is a rock near the top of the picnic ground with some lines on it .If it is much lower than the bottom line it sucks. we didn't really clean it this year,I pulled one logjam out of the crux back in April,new wood in same spot,but you can get around it,was there Friday pm.Jason and some other guy ran it at least once .

I know most year the LOG organizers get the water people to stop diverting from SSV to Lefthand for the Gnarrows Race, so maybe it will bump up Sunday/Monday?
