Anyone have any advice for running a mini max down Browns canyon at this high level? Currently at 3340, but assuming that will go up with the rain and higher temperatures. We ran it last weekend at 2260 and had a blast, but just asking for advice if it gets closer to 4000 this weekend.
Your good to go. Buddy of mine last big water year ran a 9.5 tributary R2 style with no problems. just have a kayaker with your group in case you yard sale it. and be sure and run through the meat at big drop. It was in the 3300 range.
4k is much more fun and seidels is much more forgiving than at 2k. Seven stairs at this level is awesome! I made those videos posted above. We ran probably 50 runs down browns at that level in 2011. It was a great summer I'll never forget!
We ran it at 3760 last Saturday and it was awesome. The hole in zoom flume that comes out at 2K is gone, and it's just big waves right down the middle. Number 7 of the steps and Raft ripper were huge. Just T everything up and you'll do great!
R2ed Browns at around 3500 in my mini-max last week. It was a blast. Got typewritered into the middle of Seidel's trying to run hard left. We had a nice, exploding, endo flip. We had plenty of safety set as we were running it though. Definitely a good ride in a 10.5 footer!
The clean up really depended on skill level. I came up from the green room and swam for my boat, grabbed a bag that was thrown and ended up at the shore. Same with my partner. However, the spare paddles that were in the boat ended up quite a ways down river. Good fun though!!
