Cat and gear in the Room of Doom

Saw an abandoned cat and all the fixins in the room of doom on Monday, May 9. Apparently the incident happened on Saturday. Does anyone have any details?

Westwater

I only know of one Room of Doom and that's at the bottom of Skull rapid in Westwater Canyon of the Colorado.

I believe there is a room of doom on the Gauley also... The one below Skull is much more significant.

Me too! but it seems that everywhere I go someone is talking about the room of doom as through it is a river feature?? Like a eddy that's hard to get out of. I heard someone referring to the ROM in pistol rapid on the MFS last week. IDK, I think I'm getting old because all the new schoolers have renamed everything or maybe I just had the names wrong all along.

it did not happen saturday. it happened at least after 11:00 on sunday, that is when myself and two other cats went past there. there was some gear in the room of doom on sunday morning. it looked like a red PFD and maybe a couple of other small items. water on sunday was running right at 12k. we passed no other camps that morning and only passed one camp the night before, i do not recall if that camp had a cat parked there.

The ranger said that it happened on Saturday. There was a lot of stuff in the room, including a cataraft that was beat to shit - aluminum frame, broken oars, ammo cans, dry bags. Came to the edge of the eddy and then spun back. Depending on your timing and whether you were looking, you may have missed seeing the boat.
