Awesome! Can't wait to get on it for the first time after the flood.

For those of you playing along at home... Matt and I got some significant improvements made to SSV during the whole highway reconstruction process as I first stated many moons ago. While we didn't get a perfect outcome, we GOT IT DONE. Won't got into details here since I have a gentelmens agreement with some of the folks we worked with. I should also mention that the negative nancy, nay-saying, shit talking, unoriginal, visionless, piss on your wheaties, mountainbuzz professional d-bags that said it couldn't be done were 100% wrong... so SUCK IT!

I'd be happy to share more over beers at the SSV takeout if folks that actually paddle the run want to know more.

Spill it Ian!

Since I'm not going to be able to reap the SSV goods this year you've got to fill me in here dudes. Please tell me jihad is still there... I would love to see some photos. SSV is (was?) one of my favorite front-range runs and I'd be keen to hear how she has changed since I can't buy you boys take-out beers this year!

Well, I thought I was uploading three pics, but only the ugly one posted. It's drop 2 in the Narrows and is a fast mank cascade. The good is 1 in 5 which has a nice center line. The bad is a super tight s turn move with a high probability of hitting rock. The whole run is completely different, and not for the better. Now, I don't know how it looked after the flood and before cdot rebuilt the road, but now it is pinched tight making the run artificially fast with no eddies for long stretches through tough drops. Maybe some will boat easier than they look. Some are really cool. But a lot of them have some sort of issue. Gone are the days of swims where you quickly run out of the creek. Now you'll get brutalized in many spots. But 1 in 5 looks great!
