I'm in a red chevy silverado with yellow cat on trailer. I'll get there around 9 ish. I'm looking to hook up with KSC and his crew, but also waiting for another kayaker who may make the trip. My normal cat buds have bagged it this time around.800 is a bit boney, but still doable in a paddle raft and I don't see why it would be that different in a cat. 850-875 is better. Tomorrow figures to be about 1400-1450 - highside of so called medium. Gore gets harder and pushier, but wrap rock is less likely to live up to its name.
I still haven't gotten to see anyone run Gore Rapid in a Cat or non-creature craft oar rig. It would be great to watch someone clean it. I also don't quite get how to stay in your seat going over tunnel falls - Unless you just drop the oars and hold on. But I am looking forward to watching and learning from wayniac tomorrow.
Mania - you gonna rally for tomorrow?
Rich - call if you are interested 3/748/0509...I've only run the Lower 5 - Gore is more technical/tight IMHO. We didn't run Hounds Tooth and stuff above it, so i can't compare those to Gore. The portage at gore isn't to bad, but you would need a helper unless you have a especially light rig.
Does anyone run Gore in a Cat? At what level?
Just got back from the NF Payette and do not want the season to be over. Thanks for any info!
