Westwater

Ran it last week at 19000 fun big swells strong eddy lines. As it goes down the drops get more pronounced. A group that launched same day as us flipped before funnel (very bad line sideways and river left) and didn't get the boat back until big hole camp 5 miles. I thought it was pretty straight forward with a long cold swim if you suck at life. Should be lots of fun and 85 during the day

Ran it last weekend at ~21,500. Little D is fun cake. Marble and Staircase are washed. Pour-over on river right as you round the bend after Staircase. Big Hummer is washed. Funnel 5-O was just barely starting to form again as the water drops, nice big wave train after funnel. Nothing till Skull. Same easy right to left move, breaking the laterals. Rock of Shock had 6-8 ft water surges. Nothing at bowling alley or Sock. Last Chance just barely starting to form again. Strong eddies, whirlpools, etc. All-in-all pretty easy run (at least at 21,000). Definitely wouldn't want to swim though.
