Snake RiverLandslide Effect?

Has anybody seen or heard about the stretch of The Snake south of Jackson (Alpine Canyon) since that big landslide early this Spring? We're heading that way this weekend, and I'm wondering what to expect.

I heard it created a pretty good rapid when new, at high water; though I wonder what it looks like now that its washed a bit, and the flow is coming down

Just a nice wave train, no issues

I have heard the new rapid is called "Double D" or "Double Drop". I also heard a different name based on the name of the landslide, but I don't recall what it was.

I also heard it was flipping boats in high water if they ran it too far left.

I will be heading up there in two weeks, so it will be interesting to see something new.

Its being called double draw. The left side of it had a big punchy hole at high water but its easy to miss.
