Sharing this from a post on the Front Range Paddlers group on Facebook, looks like there is a log across the left side of the top drop in #5:

"Wood alert saw a kayaker pin in #5 today on the numbers. This log stuck up after he finally came off. Please repost this to mountain buzz. It shouldn't be in play unless you take the left line at the top drop or charge really hard left from the normal right side of the first drop."

It was my friend that was hand paddling and was pinned in #5. The log was barely visible before he pinned on it. Now it's more visible. It is in the middle of the rapid and appears to be vertical in the water and not across the left line. Paddlers running either left or right of the entrance rock can easily hit the log. It's unclear if there are branches below the water that caught my friend but it was difficult to get off and very scary.

The wood is still there and the obstruction is well to the left of thalweg. The traditional drop between the two boulders renders the log a non-issue.
