Yeah, does the right line go at higher flows? We scouted from the tracks at 3000 and ran the left side which had a tounge through the hole you could crash through. I imagine the tongue would get bigger at 4000 but get some better beta. Couldn't see the right side.

What's the center line like at high water? Does the tongue go? Anyone have any pics of the hole?

Looked at it at over 6000 in town a couple days ago. The center curler looked burly, but would likely flush you out upside down.

I prefer to go rt all the time except at real low flows there is a nice boof far left.

If anyone happens to find my boat down there, kindly recycle it. Unless Nemo is having fun w/ it in which case he can have it if he gives me back my new watershed stow float. Don't get lazy down there at high water!!

Gettin' juicy in the Box

When it was 8200 in town a few years ago the middle line was the go on Mandatory. Pretty much just a float through. Red Rock was a little nasty but the rapids to keep an eye on are the last couple before the takeout. They were pretty much a jumble of exploding water and holes. Not the place to get beat up as the take out came on ya real quick. Might be worth having a bag down there so you didn't wash past if things got ugly. Scary but totally worth it.
