How many of those were self-inflicted?had 16 cracks in my huck from bear, turkey & west fork last year!!
that IV rating was all mark, who never ran it, it's V- bare minimum.Turkey was "up" on Thursday and looking like it would hold for at least a couple more days. Felt like 90ish. Don't know if it's still going or not. There's a log across the river that's pretty hard to see until it's almost too late. It's a little past halfway (two thirds to three quarters of the way down maybe?). Manky as hell and fairly committing due to the fact that the willows and mini-gorges tend to eliminate eddies and escape routes. Regardless of what Mark and Kaleb say I'd call it class V. It felt like a solid step up from Bear to me, maybe a little harder than West Fork because of the willows. The gradient is insane in there! Does anyone know what it is? Felt like over 300 to me. The big drops are sweet but the stuff in between is a mankfest.
where are you thinking you ran across rebar? I've seen it at VERY low water & the only one I can think of is the marker we used to use for where to hit the dam (till some do-gooder bent it over & made the drop harder!!)Yea add another one to the total because I just broke my boat on it today. I think I got the hole in mine on some re bar, because I didn't hit anything that hard at all and then the next thing I know my boat was filling with water.
For sure. Definitely need to get back on West Fork and do some laps.I can't believe you actually ran it, I thought that level of stupidity was more rare!!
btw, you need to get back in W. fork when it actually has water, you'll change your opinion about which is harder!
Damn, that's some carnage. Was that your Jefe Kent? Under the front of the seat right?one broken jefe on wednesday, nothing on thursday ,one broken salto on friday, one broken rocker on friday, one broken creeker on friday. Not sure about saturday or today. I'm at work (wish I was on Bear!). This is what I know.
