What River is This?

On MSN.com, they have "Class V Sledging". It looks suspiciously like Brown's Canyon, and maybe some other places on the Ark. Am I totally off? I watched all of the episodes, I think I saw Panther Rock in one of them.

Fearless -- Five individuals on the adventure of a lifetime. An original reality series.

Anything with a hummer truck in the margin has to be some alternative dimension.

The Numbers

Pretty sure that is the Numbers on the Ark. The guide is Gary from Aspen Seals. They do a lot of their trips on the Numbers.

low water #s.

i was guiding a commercial raft trip this summer on the #s, and during lunch my customers asked me what those crazy people were doing (no cameras there that day). i said, "riverboarding."

the fucking kiwi dickhead replies, quite indignantly, "it's called sledging."

numbers, it shows them puting in below #3. they prably did 3 to race take out. I posted on fearless and told them they were lame as hell for calling that class 5. I would guess around 550- 700 club footed squirrels(CFS). nice profile pic whiteymcchoco


a few years ago those crazy sledgin fools were puting in in granite running the old damn and pine creek #'s at commercially raftable flows. a few fellow employees of mine were safety rowing so if people got cold or tired they could ride in the raft. they ran the raft through the old damn too!! thats the rebar gnar
