Most of the river is Class I+. The challenge is mainly to keep from hitting the cliff walls that
the run goes by. There are 3 rapids that I can remember. The first two are easy II and the last
is a shallow boulder garden that runs for a 100m or so before a turn and some medium sized waves.
Class II+ or III-. This is one of the prettiest rivers I have seen. There is a small playspot for
kayaks about 50m below the put in bridge. The majority of the run is distinguished by the
spectacular canyons it goes through. The first canyon is fairly wide open with fairly low walls.
Another section has extremely tall cliffsbut is still fairly open. The last section reminds me of
a flooded slot canyon in Utah. It is very windy with cliffs extending right into the river.
