We ran this section on 5/29/19 at around 600 cfs, following a rare spring flood event. It was actually better than expected, as we went into it with an expedition mindset and no hopes for goods. I had a braap, and was pleasantly surprised with some really decent splats and squirt spots -the run is quite bouldery. Watch out for willows and barbed wire fences though. The second rapid is also a bit of a doozy. Had a bit of an "oh shit" moment there after committing to a gnarly willow tunnel, although it all worked out fine in the end. If conditions are wet, the takeout road will be a total muddy mess. 4wheel drive required for sure.
