I have looked into that run before but there isn't much beta out there. A trip report and some photos would be greatly appreciated.

its like kayaking through vedauwoo

paddled it the around the first of last month and cant stop thinking about it!

Boofington Heights Evan Stafford's in depth report of a 2011 descent.

AW Journal Nov./Dec.1985 issue Jim Rada's write up of his 1983 descent.

River Description

First pioneered by Minnesotan original gangster, Jim Rada during a fluke release in 1983. This run remained dewatered and unrun since. Read Jim's write up in AW Journal Nov./Dec.1985 issue on pg. 20.
Fast forward to the banner water year of 2011, reports of a once again full canyon enticed a crew of Colorado bros to join me for a little exploration.
Run is 16 miles in length, consistent gradient average of about 100 fpm, with 70 for the lowest and 130 for the steepest. 13 miles plus on the run is consistent, continuous fun class IV with a good handful of moderate class V moves to keep things interesting.
I was able to run it twice this season, once at an estimated 500 cfs. and once at an estimated 1000. Quality is definitely in the five star range, especially at 1000.
Public access exists for both put in and take out.
Read Evan Stafford's in depth report at: Boofington Heights Here's to hoping it runs more often!

Totally agree with Ty. Super classic run, wilderness canyon, great rapids, adventure boating at it's finest but not all the way on the sharpest end. Still a difficult run but accessible for the experienced creek paddler who doesn't want the gnarl. Get it while you can!!!
