At 100 CFS it's not that narrow. Class wise I'd call it a very technical 3 with 2 consequences in
that if the worst happened, it's a short access to being able to walk out. No serious swims. Lots
of drops in the 3-6 foot level and big rocks.
A 3 because there would be a lot of maneuvering to do. Very easy to walk around anything you might
not want to run.
The dam at the start of it is part of an old quarry.
I've seen it at 125 CFS and there wer no boils or anything indicating serious hydraulics.
You won't find it mentioned in any book because it's only runnable after lots of rain and not for

It would almost be as though someone built an artificial WW course.
Description: The dam at the put-in is well over 15 feet.
The run is over a mile long, and there are only 2 good drops.

The last 2/3 of the run is basically flat with lots of strainers.
