Upper Blue:New river wide tree

I know water is almost gone, but we were grabbing a last minute blue run today and there is a new river wide tree about 1/4 mile above the take out. There are a few small eddies on the river right bank(trespassing). It is not sneakable at all. I would be game to help get it out but it is going to involve a bigger chainsaw than I have.... looks like maybe a 24 inch bar might get it down, along with some solid rope work. Maybe a rafting company can contact the land owner and get permission to cut it out.... needs to be done from river right.

just pull it out from river left with a winch @ the camp ground. No problem. It can be sneaked from right or left ina kayak; rafts aren't advisable unless you take out prematurely.
