Can anyone tell me what the Alto Alto is like at the current level (about 250)? It will be my first time out this year and I am looking for a class III to III+. I was thinking about combining the upper Alto Alto with the main run, but have not done either of these before. Thanks in advance for any info you can offer.

It's probably about the right level for a III+ boater. At 250 it will be bony, everywhere, but especially the upper part (above the textbook put-in). In fact, I would be tempted to say just do the standard put-in with the water this low. The crux drop may still be in the IV- range but you can get out and scout it and decide what you want to do. I haven't done this run in a while, but I used to love it when I was a III/IV- boater. Always be prepared for the very cold water up there.
