But if the idea is left runs that are meatier than normal, the bigger line is the right headwall line. Left is a great sneak route and definitely works with enough flow.

For folks who've never seen Wild Burro before, do not deprive yourself of that right line experience! You'll have no doubt how it got it's name. It's one of the blindest, steepest, fastest lines I've ever seen, always leaves me grinning!

for meaty lines, how about left runs at Cable and Widowmaker?

Iv done Snow Hole on the Lower Salmon on the left side in really low water in a raft but my ridiculous friend took it in high water last week in a 36 inch monster truck tire. It was unplanned but worked out pretty good.

"Go left and die" on the Green River is the first one that came to mind, but I think left is actually the normal run. Maybe you should go right.

Oh hell ya!! Them “Beater Chodes” are crazier then I am!
I would definitely have to go right there, put my right tube in the right slot, and work my cat over the rock!

I so wanted to run left at Warm Springs last time( first time) but it would have taken a hover craft, ( low water trip) I’ll plan to send it next time.

I did run left at Big Joe, and that was really fun, tight up against the rock, and hauling ass so I wouldn’t get surfed.

My river mentor Chris Wilcox once gave us sage words of wisdom:
"If you have an ounce of character you will run straight down the middle of Hermit."
