Justin can probably give you a better account. But..he did say that he felt the rock after he plugged the hole. He said he pretty much just slowly washed over/around it while he was deep and that it was not a forceful impact or piton. But the rock is definitely in play,..it could very well paste the next person to attempt it, although I think at the level we were in there (~350 cfs) the rock is pretty deep, so the chances of pitoning it are pretty slim. But who knows..!?

Pitoning is hitting a rock in the middle of a rapid or at the base of a drop so hard that it knocks the &%^(@ out of you, craters your boat, possibly breaking your ankles, in a snowstorm and questioning why you ever started kayaking. I have a little experience with it. It hurts and should be avoided.
