Will they issue a permit for one? I was thinking 2 was mandatory minimum. Have fun; I am in no way opposed to the idea of a solo run, just not sure the rangers approve.

I did not see any restrictions here against solo boating

I've soloed many times over the last 20 years,you just have to meet the regulations regarding firepan ,grover, and spare paddle.

We were thinking of launching on the Thursday but we may delay if there is a shuttle option. We will be in one rig and wanted to leave it at the takeout as we are coming from Durango. Do you have a plan? I was thinking mountain bike. If we end up launching Friday you are welcome to join us, we are experienced self support kayakers.

Paddling alone not recommended.....

if you have wife, GF or BF, children, pets ect.
That said I run WW solo all the time, 1500cfs all the way up to 50,000cfs
Started doing it because just easier..... load and go!
Love the solitude and having the canyon to myself. However rarely go through with out seeing someone in there, always meeting great peeps too.
Bring your bike for the full solo experience!
