Slickrock Takeout Sunday

Just a shoutout to the whole crew at the slickrock takeout sunday afternoon. The takeout kind of sucks. No eddy and fast water. Add in 10-15 boats and it could have been a shitshow of epic proportions. Everyone was awesome. Catching boats and dragging them up and stacking them tight along the shore. My thanks go out to everyone.
P.S. Its just going to get worse as the water and boat numbers climb so if your pulling out there be aware.

Is this the river right takeout above the bridge or the newer takeout people are talking about?

This is a challenging takeout and launch. Even though this is private property, the BLM is going to get some tie off posts in the ground there this week/weekend. It is a great place to have 2 ppl on boats, one rowing and one managing the rope. Stagger your boats...don't all come in at once. Slow your boat down a lot as you approach. And this is the private land ramp on left below the bridge. Thanks for supporting each other at the ramp!!

Tczues, what were you riding. I got some good pics of a gray Down River cat a a red round boat going through snag. Big water, thanks for the update. Some tie down posts would help a lot.
