Pre-Gauley Fest run

Making some last minute plans......according to the Gauley release schedule, it will run 9/23, 9/24, 9/25, and 9/26 during the festival. We are going to be in the area early 9/22, anyone know something else running in the area? Bringing playboats, so nothing to creeky.

latenightjoneser, mescalimick and I are headed there the weekend before the Fest and plan to hit the Upper Yough on Friday. You can check the AW page on it for beta. Word from my SE friends is that it is like Five Falls of the Chattooga without the consequences. I've playboated Sec. IV more times than I can remember and if you are comfortable on the Upper Gauley then you should be more than fine.

Mescalimick is all but sacrificing goats in hopes that we'll get rain and the Cheat Canyon will go off as well. Both rivers are a few hours' drive from Summersville.

If you are more a Lower Gauley type then I would suggest the New River Gorge. It will be low, but Lower G types will certainly enjoy it. Like the Gauley it has numerous rapids with big undercuts or hidden-from-above-the-drop undercuts, but if you know where they are, they are *plenty* easy to avoid. I think the Cheat at low water would also be in that league, but I've never done it so I can't really say.
