upper boulder creek & upper source

Has anyone run upper boulder creek around where bould falls comes in- if so what level and how many was it? Same thing with the upper source of boulder creek- above the waterfall.
Both looked a little bony @ 300 and 200 respectively

The mile above the typical put in of the source is generally good. I am not sure if it has been run this year though.

The stuff below Boulder falls gets run somewhat regularly, with one or two portages. Some of the stuff above the falls is good, but I think there are a few in there that have never been run. Wood is abundant.

Get it now, as the water is dropping quickly.

Hope that is heplpful, Dave.

Forrest said the stuff above Boulder Falls was like Eldo, but a notch harder. Not sure what that means, or what he ran... Sounds scary.

Upper source doesn't look like it's been run this year. Looked at it yesterday and Harvey Wallbanger is a no go without a couple hours of wood cleaning. Gunshot? looked good to go - wouldn't want to f that one up....

The crux rapid on the upper stretch is called gun-shy, for some rednecks wheeling around in a jeep carrying alot ammo and budwieser as the first decent happened.
