River Description

You have to earn your turns on this one, that's right hiking up with your gear.  The bottom starts off as Class 3-4 and flattens out. From here the river is pool drop. Give up and put on whenever you want, but there are big slides all the way at the top. Of course you'll have to hike to the top of those too.
