Ok, Alto Alto looks like fun in the CRC. Can anyone give me some info?

Is a creek boat necessary for this stuff? It sounds like a bunch of pour overs and eddie hopping. Nothing too big.

Thanks

Its been sitting around 250-300 for awhile.

Sounds like a good after work run. Thanks for the info.

Wahoo!

You will definately be fine with your playboat on Alto right now. Its at a fun level but is definately boney at spots. I ran it Saturday and had a blast (even though one of my buddies swam and his boat floated for almost 2 miles before it got stuck). If you are going to head up there this week sometime and wouldnt mind another paddler you can count me in. Let me know. Also, a question for everyone else, I heard a few years ago someone got killed on an undercut rock somewhere on this run. I was trying to figure out where it was. Does anyone know so I can make sure to be extra carefull around there?

yeah, it'd be nice to have another paddler. We're shooting for Friday afternoon around 5pm. Give me your email and I'll keep you informed.

Any access issue at the take out or the proper put in? Where have people been putting? Bridge on PktoPk or up Rollinsville Rd? There is a landowner that can be a bit cranky. As for the death, it was a few years ago. It was a 17 year old girl in a Kmart raft. She got pinned at the trestle bridge near Pinecliff. I know there has been good carnage but I have not heard of any kayaker deaths on Alto Alto. We may be heading up Thrusday afterwork.

A friend and I are thinking about going up there tonight. Never run it, but I'm comfortable leading. Do you want to share a shuttle? 303-918-7546

Hit alto last night in my playboat. Had never run it before and felt fine. My only suggestion would be to get no later of a start than put on at 7:00 (especially if you scout tunnell) and have plenty of warm clothes at the takeout. Damn that water is cold!

Just got off the run at 7:30. It's a fun level about 450 cfs and we were happy to
have creek boats. Remember to run left at the tunnel unless you want to hit a
bunch of holes.

Tooks us 1 1/2 hours, don't park at the takeout on river left under the big 'NO PARKING' sign, just
cross the bridge (to the right) at the takeout and park on the dirt road pullout nearby.

Bring pogies or gloves, or be prepared for frostbitten fingers!
