crystal Gorge report

The upper is clean of wood. The inner is not. Another tree fell from the rim and wedged river wide about 15ft below last years tree. Someone will repost if anything can be done.

Sounds like inner is out of the question without some serious chainsaw-rapp'ing bad'assery.

I don't have a chainsaw but I was pretty stoked about getting on the inner, if we can find a saw then we can make the rapping happen. I'll gladly head out for some hedge trimming.

Jah buddy! Nice work. How's the flow in there? How's the entrance to Zute these days?

Brody's shying away from the credit but deserves it as much as I or more. Buy that man a beer too! He was the motivator. Unfortunately I'm out of town for the weekend so that was my adventure in there unless it holds for next week. Can't wait to hear the stories though. Got get some!

Flow a bit high still. Today probably better. We were discussing that the entrance to Zute seems to be a bit different now. Not as much of a pool above and more water heading right??

^^ yeah I think that's right. Some solid boaters have gone right due to the change at the lip. My hypothesis is that you want a bit more water to make the move left there, even if it means dealing with more retentive features once you drop in. In any event, thanks again to you and Brody!
