Creature Craft runs the class VI Tumwater Canyon

Hey all, Icicle TV here in Leavenworth, Washington.
ITV is a grassroots local website for the Leavenworth area. We feature interesting folks doing cool stuff.
We just released our new Creature Craft video and it's pretty fun.
The guys hit the Wenatchee River's Tumwater Canyon section, with several large class V-VI sections of big water. It was a sunny day and we had several cameras rolling to catch all the antics.
Have fun and thanks for watching, but don't forget to come back to Mountain Buzz.com afterwards for your WW fix.
We'll see you at the put in.

How do you read the river effectively with that massive pylon in your face?

In the video it says that they are training for The Grand Canyon of the Stikine...that should be some good footage.

I wonder if it's like a double canoe, the front guy gives the push forward and the back guy who has better view angle does the steering?

Looks freaking awesome! It looks like those things just can't get stuck anywhere.

I have always thought these were dumb, its not that impressive to me to drop into holes sideways and surf till you get spit out. I have only seen them in person on Gore and it never looks like they have any control. Style has to count for something.

Nevertheless, they keep running big big water, and they always seem to survive. I'll be interested to see how the Stikine goes if they make the attempt.

It's called a tandem canoe Kazak! Got a 12 June Westwater launch might need some low water advice. This'll be my first time solo!
