Uncompaghre Quality Quickie?

Has anyone seen how the run looks this year? I saw the landslide last summer took out the best meat of the run and then it looked like CDOT finished it off. Is there anything left now?

We did it yesterday. Its at a good level and fun, but I wouldn't go out of my way for it. There is a mudslide actively moving into the crux section. That combined with highish water means that the riverbed is changing as we speak. The riverbed is pretty manky. I highly recommend not flipping, but there is a good clean line through the whole section. I would say it is worth stopping if you are driving through.
