Put-in river-left just below the Peale bridge.
The first "action" after 2+ miles of warm up. Wavetrains on river-right where most of the flow pushes.
The clear path is river-right of this island. This is the popular destination for "on-river" spectating carnage at Rattlesnake Rapid on race day!
Rocks the size of a Magnavox TV river-right on the outside of a slight turn to the left.
Looks to only be 3 pines remaining. Keep river-left.
The kickoff of the "Mad Mile" of semi-continuous class II boogie water.
The biggest hole on the Red Mo. The Chicko's Rock is river-left and the hole is left of center. Playable if you can attain.
Stay river-right and "split" the Twinn's because this is the finale!
Take-out river-left under or just past the bridge.
