The put-in for this run is about an hour east of Ashland, about 1/2 between Medford and Grants Pass. There is a write-up on AW, It's a great but short class 3 to 3+ creek run with continuous gradient, This time of year, the flow is from rainfall but it also has a dependable snowmelt season in Apr./May. There also two other boatable creeks in the drainage as well, Elliot and Carberry; Elliot has a short class 3 run and Carberry has a fun class 4 run (there a short write-up on AW on Carberry too) I paddled them both yesterday and I'm also the speeding kayaker in Will's clip.
Did you get on the list serve because we will do these runs whenever they're in as they're fairly close and we love to show people down both of these runs. When the snowmelt season starts and there is more daylight after work runs on these two runs or Box Canyon on the Sacramento happen often.
