when is WestWater most rowdy?

for some reason I remember hearing 10,000-20,000, but I don't have the experience to back it up. what are others' thoughts?

At about 18,000 most rapids beging wash out. My favorite runs are around 15,000 but lower levels bring out some other fun rapids (SITM, Bowling Alley, etc...)

If I remember right it gets ugly around 14,000 - 18,000. I think it calms down after that. However, down around 2500 it wasn't exactly tame. New rapids popped up and it was a hoot.

I heard 100,000 looks down right terrifying. Had a friend who hiked in and peaked at it at that level ('82-'83?). People frequently talk about the "terrible teens", but I think the simple number of people wh run it at that level undercuts its "terribleness".
