Beta on Lodore rafting @ 4300 ?

Anybody raft this lately at medium water level ? Heading up this weekend, and I just haven't been on this stretch in a while. Thanks.

The right side of the river in Lower Disaster goes into an overhang that can sort of ruin your day - but it's super easy to avoid if you're paying attention. Also it can be a little bit pushy into the birth canal at the bottom of Triplet. Beyond scouting Triplet and Hells (always mandatory in my mind, although I'm used to 800 cfs and other people's boats being stuck out of sight from the entrance) I can't think of anything that isn't a fun read & run at this level. After the Yampa adds it's water, Split Mountain becomes a blast. We ran it in ~30 minutes Wednesday.
Have a great trip! I don't get on Lodore this year until the 9th - hopefully they will still be letting more than 800 out of the dam. is offline   Reply With Quote
