Editor's note: American Whitewater does not endorse trespassing in order to access runs or to scout drops. Paddlers who trespass, especially on posted property, may endanger access for everyone. At the very least, they must understand that they trespass at their own risk.
From KindKreekFreak on Boatertalk:
nothing prediculary deadly about the drops. The wood wouldn't be to terminal if you were caught in it. Being flipped on Catalyst falls could be pretty painful. The rocks were pretty abrasive on the big slide. If you went deep at the Zute Chute you could break a boat or hurt some feet. With all of the variance in the rating scale it is hard to say how it would rank. It was harder than some stuff that gets called class five that might not should be. so i will call a class five but if your class five standards are higher than mine it could be class four. On a 5.1 to 5.10 scale i would say 5.1 to 5.2. Maybe this will help.
P.s. thanks Bradley for the AW post.
