See Shawn Haggin's description and photos at Oregon Kayaking.
The one good piece of advice I have about the run is to approach the run from the upstream side and only scout the upper portion of the canyon, the bottom section of the canyon (below where OregonKayaking took out) is so gnarly that once you look at it you will be convinced to not touch your boat. We made the mistake of driving up the narrow road that follows the lower part of the canyon and scouting what we thought was the run. By the time we realized there was a runnable section above, most of us had decided it was prudent to bail and go find a bar.
