I've only been through it at 5K or less. It almost looks like less of a keeper at this level?

Anyway, alot of water hammering through there right now!

Que the boaters from LA saying only the worlds elite expedition kayakers run this stuff.

Hobie, have you hit it this high and how retentive is the hole? It looks like the tounge has washed out the meat of the hole.

honestly i think about 6/7k would be the worst... this just looks like you could hold your breath, take a little thrashing, then roll up once it calms...

I wanna see Life After Death at this level. I feel like that would be worse... or just as washed out.
