I wasn't on the trip, but I had friends do a SFS a couple weeks ago. The log in Devil's creek is obstructing the bottom portion of the river left line. I saw video at least. The group was able to make it over/around the log.
It looked like it could become sketchy with a raft as the water drops. Surely someone who has seen it in person will comment below.
This is a super helpful thread; thanks to all who've posted in it.
From looking at the videos posted above, I'm thinking it's getting too low for a 14' catboat to comfortably run it. A group of us (with three 14' cats) were looking at a 6/26 launch. Perhaps it's time to bust out the IK's...
hey AlanS, I would think your right about the 14'er. I would sat that 3' is the cut off for running rubber. Gray hound and Elk creek get really tight under 3' At 2.5' you would probably have to break down and re-rig for both. Below 2' and you'd have to fight a bunch of narrow drops. If all goes well, I too will be on the SFS 6.26.2015
