Description: At the request of all other paddlers, Jim "Stinky" Carroll was shamed into rinsing his under-arms. Even in the nasty Haw, it was an improvement. This small ledge is about half way through the run. It is after "Thunder Falls" and before "S-turn". The level has to be above 1.0' on the paddler's gauge (~5.7' on the USGS) in order to form a wave that you can sit on. It is really a pretty lame wave, but there are no real features on this section so you have to exploit what you have to work with.
