Captain Nemo rapid


Description: This is the last rapid in the first gorge and one of the biggest rapids in the section. The standard route is to catch a small eddy on river right just above the entrance. A steep narrow tongue aims left and deposits one in the main current. The biggest error that several of us committed was to overpower the entrance, so we shot up onto the left wall, before dropping backwards into the current and flipping. The streambed is shallow but smooth.
