Whoever said the Flat is runnable at 5cfs must have been riding a bicycle down it. Consider 2 foot
@Bahama to be minimum. At 4' and over, the broken dam becomes a class 3+ and the bridge below a
solid class 3. le scott

The broken dam marks the begining of a lively class II section that only gets bigger as the water

There is a broken dam on this section that should be scouted. It is decidedly more difficult than
the rest of this class I-II run.
