Report

Account Looking back upstream to the last pitch of the Green Wall. Lining up for the main drop at the Green Wall. Lining up for the first big hole at the Green Wall. The Little Green Wall is a short distance downstream of the Green Wall and requires one to thread through some large boulders and a couple holes. This photo is of the runout looking back upstream. Class III rapids just downstream of Klondike Creek. This narrow constriction in the canyon walls is just downstream of the Green Wall. Although Prelude was previously used to refer to the rapid now known as Fawn Falls, boaters use it to refer to the class III lead-in to the Green Wall. South Bend marks the start of the section of concentrated rapids of the canyon section. There is a small river bar campsite on river right here. At higher flows the center rock at the bottom forms a large hole. The preferred route starts right and then skirts the hole on the left at the bottom.
