That wood has been there a while and really isn't play unless you're flirting with the center boulder which is a nasty pin spin whether wood is there or not.
I think staying right is the easiest and safest move. People usually blow this by trying to go for the mystery eddy, not entering it high enough and getting pushed into the pin spot. When it doubt, just get surfed in the hole aligned with the mystery eddy and it spits you out against the right wall and leads to safety.
Anyway, it's a good reminder that even though the run feels like it's over, there's a significant pin spot in that rapid.
Looks like the tunnel is cranking down so it's moot point anyway until next year, unless you believe Bailey Jake that Bailey is always running in December.
