Hey All,

I was just wondering how Westwater is at 6500 cfs? Any specific features to watch out for or lines you recommend? Been down this section before, but it has been a while. Thanks for the help and hope everyone is having a good season.

It's fun. Same move at Skull, Sock it to Me has the largest hit from the right side v-wave lateral, so square up to it at 2:00 and push. Class III at that level but Sock can flip you if you're not paying attention.

Probably easier than below 5K. Unfortunately Bowling Alley will be washed out. It's still lots of fun and doesn't start to really bare it's teeth until 9 or 10K.

Have a great trip!

We got back on Monday from a run down there. Everything is washed out pretty much. Skull is the same right to left move. Sock it to me wasn't much to write home about. Last chance was actually fun. The float out was nice due to more flow. Have fun don't get too wasted until after last chance and you'll be fine.

You can run the domer in last chance as low as 6k. That's my favorite run in the canyon at those levels.

That sounds like a perfect day.

At these levels Last Chance is the most fun.
