We ran 1st and 3rd gorges then out through the rockwood box on Memorial day. The entire run took eight 8 hrs at a pretty good pace with no incidents. None of us had ever seen any of the run ( with the exception of the amimas), so we did some scouting in the first gorge. The beta in CRC is actually very good with the named rapids in the first gorge being the mandatory scouts. The 2 miles above the second gorge are pretty fun read and run class 4 boulder gardens although tight/bony in places. Big carry around the entire second gorge ( 1:15); although there may be a way to shorten it. We humped out the right side, through a small draw, then contoured around till we could drop back to the river. Reminded me of the Green monster on the Clark's Fork. 3rd gorge is pretty casual class 4 read and run, very easy to boat scout ( with the exception of the first drop). Wood is a concern on the entire run; see recent posts on this issue, and check out the alerts forum. Start early, and be ready to boat scout.
