Skull Hole runnable?

Running West water this weekend in my cat and was wondering if there is enough water to hit the hole straight on or if it's just a rock sticking up. Low water so I'm looking to have some fun where ever I can find it. Thanks.

Successful passage will solely be determined on the brand of cooler you have.

Actually the brand isn't nearly as significant as whether you drained it in the morning or evening.

Just split it with those big tubes- you'll be fine. K's been doing throw bag practice too and he's always got your back.

It should be a poorover at this level. I would avoid it.

I ran WW last weekend. Skull looks a little tight to get through. I imagine you could do it if everyone lo-sides against the wall and the left side of the raft could slide over the rock, but it would be ugly. Everyone was taking the hard left route around raft ripper.
