The short run above the falls consists of about 3 distinct sets of easy drops, with ok play
features at optimal levels, and a 20+ ft waterfall. The best play feature on this section is the
hole right above the third drop called Dead Deer Hole. Good eddy on the right. The waterfall is the
reason to drive all the way up here! It must not be missed.
This has to be the eaziest waterfall to run over 20 ft in the country. The pool is very deep and
that allows you to try any off the lip trick out there. So look at it, get the video camera, and
fire it up! If you set ropes it is an easy walk back to the top for multipule runs.
At certain levels a nice riverwide hole forms about 100 ft upstream of the falls. It is shallow but
great for spins. In that aspect it is almost as good as Swimmers on the Lower Yough. Just have a
good roll because it would not be adviseable to swim due to the fact you do have a 20+ft waterfall
downstream. Runnable only after heavy rains.
