Document - Report on Whitewater Recreation Opportunities Downstream of Condit Dam

Abstract

A short run with approximately6 - 8 classI I-III rapids, which generally are small riffle-type drops which do not require complex maneuvering. In addition, there is one ledge drop of approximately 6 vertical feet about mid way through the run (near Steel Bend). This drop has a vertical waterfall chute on river right and a 45-degree sloping chute on river left, with the entire drop confined in a vertical-walled canyon. The drop can be scouted and/or portaged on either side of the river, perhaps more easily on river left.

Description
