Treasure Canyon Question?
What is a good level for your first time down treasure canyon? Bare minimum flows? I notice the water is starting to come up for it, and its the closest creeking to me. And who's good to contact about going?
I've done it at 250 and 300. I have in my notes that 300 to 350 would be optimal for a first time. 300 was better than 250 but 250 was still great. I imagine you could do it at 200 or lower but don't know first hand. Be careful in Twizzler at lower flows. I pitoned hard on the opposite wall. And one of the first gorges has a tight squeeze with a choke stone that might go at higher flows but looks like a high speed piton at 300.
