Had a look at this on 6/6. Flows would have been somewhere between 8-9k cfs. At this level it was much sneakier than I would have guessed, looking like a standing wave and only occasionally showing its shape. We ran right and so did all the boats we saw. Not difficult to avoid once you have an idea of the general location of the rock.

As a point of interest, the rockfall in question originated from about 1,200 ft. above the river. The slab that fell looks to have shattered up high and gone to both sides of a small spur high above the rapid. There is still a lot of pulverized material on the slope that looks poised to come down sooner or later.

Got this from the Sand Wash ranger today:

"I will be participating in raft recovery operations downstream at mile 56.5 to remove an abandoned raft wrapped on the new rock in the center of the main channel of Steer Ridge Rapid."
