I'm not sure "run" is the appropriate verb. Perhaps "walked" is more accurate?....

This is a bit of a sore subject for me as I tried to find someone for Toltec for the last several years I lived in CO. It's always baffled me that people have trouble reading between the lines in the guidebook descriptions. From WWotSR, when I read the Toltec description, it tells me very little about the run because it was obviously way too high when the Durango crew dropped in. This does not mean the run is crap. I'm willing to bet that at more manageable flows that run is a good adventure with a handful of great drops. And if you don't believe that, get a hold of "The Best of Paddler Magazine."
There is a story of a group running the Toltec in T Canyons. And they do not say its a heinous portagefest.

D. Hippie is not to be trusted. Remote wilderness sufferfests and misadventures are his specialty. You will not find him on rivers with other paddlers. He is an agoraphobic creek fanatic only interested in 2nd or 3rd descents.
