As someone who has run it at all kinds of levels from 150 to 1000 cfs over the last 30 yrs and has notched maybe a couple dozen Super Max decents (probably lame compared to some these days), I'd say 325 is an especially inviting level. Not only because you can slice and dice Super Max, just like Dave Frank's run posted in video on the other thread, but because you can probably do first fall in 4 falls, too. Making for a no portage decent. I wasn't there for Saturday and don't know if anyone was running the first fall, but at 400 on Sunday it was not an inviting looking drop. All I can say is that a no portage decent of Bailey is an especially enjoyable feeling. Which, for and advertised draw of many people to an event, I think it should be.
As far as dialing it up for the second day, I wonder how many will be exhausted the second day and surprised after being enticed by it the day before? It should probably come with a posted warning as to the specific flows and difficulties each day. Higher is basically harder there.
