The Schmitt of the CRG (Columbia River Gorge)


First time hitting up some of the classics in the Columbia River Gorge. Clay and I decided it would be best to start the trip with a sick huck, so we took a 30 minute detour to Celestial Falls on our way to Hood River, The following morning Kyle Hull and John McConville routed me down my virgin lap of the legendary LDUB(Little White Salmon) at 3.9 - 4.1 which was exciting to say the least, I was beat coming right off the couch into the jive of the white, but fun was had none the less. A group of us decided to run the Farmlands section of the White Salmon instead of the Green Truss which wasnt a bad decision in my book because I had a blast. Its a great start to the 12' season hopefully the weather cools off a bit, so run off lasts and blasts. first try using sony vegas not sure i like it..
Huge Thanks to BIOMECCA from Jackson Hole for all the killer beats, songs in order

The obvious things are your non-pro skills are apparent with the time you spend in the box, and you're using the wrong paddle. Also, who flips over?

Looks like it was a fun trip.

One real comment was your credits at the end zoom in before you can read any of it.

Note to rafters: that was sarcasm don't tell me you hope I can't walk when I'm 38 becuase you can't understand a joke.

Sick video man. Awesome way to kill 20 minutes while I sit in the office and wish I was there.

The Little White looks busy at 4 feet.

Is the Truss still full of wood?

i hear the truss is a 6 hour mission, didnt sound like it didnt go just sounded like alot of extra work, its insane how much shit is in the water from all the trees that were topped, and ldub at 4 feet was a roudy first time.. but fun as shit.

thanks brandob9, you guys live in a very special place protect that shit for ever. Never have I seen such perfect waterfalls!

We try, man! You only saw three rivers, right? You should come back for the other hundred or so.
