Hello hello,

Is anyone running clear creek after work this week (I work a 9-5)? I went out today and got a good idea of the river from Rigor to the damn, but there were only two of us and we decided not to run it because we thought if anyone had to make any kind of rescue it could have gotten hairy. I haven't seen it, but I hear Dumont is a lot of fun too. I just moved out and haven't run any section before, but if anyone is running it after work this week I'd love to tag along. I've run numbers ~2k and don't think I'd be a safety issue.

Hope everyone is enjoying the flows!

I might be game, I've ran it at low water in a kayak and around 600 in a raft. I've never seen it this high though.

Not to sound like a dick here because I don't know your skill level but, please reality check on this. I have run clear creek a lot, all sections including lower CC a few years back at ~1500. This section of water is never a joke and at this level is is REALLY not a joke. I would suggest that you run it lower at "normal highwater" flows before you take on epic water like this. If you do want to run it, run it with a SOLID crew that you KNOW, not with MB hookups you don't know and can not count on. My two cents here. Matt

I understand what you're saying. If anyone is serious and wants to form a "solid" crew Holler. None of my friends will paddle harder than class III. I'm ready to step it up. I'm way over due for a swim (sorta joking) :lol: I have a shit load of time off and I'm ready to get after it.
