A short, steep tributary to Brice Creek. The run starts with a nice 10-15 foot falls before entering a gorge with good whitewater. There is no true class V, kind of on par with Brice Creek, but less friendly and a touch harder.
The gorge often collects wood, so scout thoroughly before putting on or the best option is teaming up with a local who has done the run before.
