Peter and Kathy Holcombe just completed a Grand Canyon river trip, Lee's to Pearce. Peter kayaked the trip, as did his twelve year old daughter Abby. She ran Granite on the right and Lava in the slot run (right side of the ledge hole). She rolled in Granite, but ran everything and was not washed out of her boat. She refused to ride on the rafts, even when her group had floating lunches, and paddled 30 miles the last day to get to the take-out ahead of a huge wind storm. I had a chance to interview Abby and her parents last night. You can find the interview here:

I know, I know, more competition for the future permit lotteries...
