Staircase rapid

Report

Account Second river-wide rapid of import below the I-64/Woolen Mills put-in. This one is more complex and tougher to boat-scout and has the potential for a long swim. This rapid is comprised of three distinct ledges requiring good boat control to tackle properly. The three ledges are spread out over 50+ yards and offer fairly easy eddies between drops. This rapid should really be rated a Class III(-) for the self-rescue difficulties alone.
