Wood in Top Class V in Eleven Mile

There is a log that creates a strainer type situation in the top class V. Maybe 50 feet above the setup eddie for the big s turn. Right at the top of a small hydraulic. Unfortunatly at 175cfs that is the only way through. At higher flows I am sure the left channel will open up. At the same time you can boat over top if you dont mind it.

we pulled out the wood in the top drop and some other couple spots. There's a river-wide strainer in there too. She's a tad bony at 200-ish but fun in a south platte-y granite boofing kind of way.

Going up there this weekend and I haven't run it before. Other than the V's, is it best to take a playboat or a creeker, or both to run the different drops? Since the two V's are at the putin/takeout, two boats could work.

Thanks,

Definitely a creek boat. Even in the middle section, there is not much play if any. Have fun!

Hey I just got done running this and the wood I was talking about is still there. It's hard to see, but if you know where to look it's there. All I can say is dont swim above the setup eddy in the top part of the top class V.

Bottom class V was allot of fun at 200+ though. Another 100 cfs or so and this run is going to be GREAT!
