nope

this creek drops off the face of the earth, 1800 fpm is what we figured. My new DVD is coming out soon, look for Ed Lucero's run on the Guadalupe, this new creek is twice as steep as that. Or basically take the Pueblo creek in NM and multiply it 5 times. The photos don't do this creek justice. You could'nt pay me to run it! But you could portage the first mile and then have some good 4-5 to the confluence of the Toltec gorge. Adios, Atom...

1800FT, hmmm-come on Atom..Looks like alot of drops into rocks, did you see makeable lines in the first mile? Also if it's steeper than eds guad run I don't think anyone would want it, as that is still the sickest thing I have ever seen ran to date and that was a long time ago as you know..Better pictures brotha, lol get back in there..Have a good winter

i would agree with the statement that theres potential in that area...think about it....Toltec, Brazos, Treasure Canyon, this....from a geologic standpoint, all these deep gorges cut into the hard bedrock means the rock around there is fairly uniform....so if one or two or three of these are similar, then shouldnt there be more? im betting the Conejos drainage has some hidden canyons no one has been to yet...that or the upper navajo drainage SE of Pagosa.

yup

I could be wrong about 1800 fpm, but thats what we figured out and it is twice as steep as the Guadalupe. Yup, the pictures suck and i definately wouldn't run any of it. As for Gary's question about whether it is runnable at all? Not by me, but there are a few lines in there, and some portages and some must make eddies. Bottom line is that it is not totally ununnable, but I bet that most people that saw it would walk away.
Next time someone runs the Toltec, hike up this baby and see what the bottom half looks like, that could be the good section. We only checked out the top part.
