I'm headed to float Pumphouse to Rancho this weekend. I'm relatively new to the duckie thing having spent the last 10 years or so on river trips as a raft passenger (have done a bit of oaring just class IIs mostly). I ran Pumphouse in my duckie last August when it was around 1100 but at 2400 I know it's going to be a bit more sporty.
Any tips for Eye or Yarmony? I am still hopeful that these are pretty straightforward at this level as well but Yarmony packs a punch in the duckie even at low water so I'm prepared to swim too. I've been tossed out of rafts a few times over the last decade so I know the drill but hoping to avoid it nonetheless.
You'll be fine, I put newbie 12 yr olds in Duckie's and cut em loose, with supervision of course. No flips or swims, pretty straight forward. Left at the top of Yarmony and avoid the wall in the runout after eye of the needle.
