As far as we know, the first descent of this crick was by John Greer, Chris, Allan, Marie and Mano, who scouted and successfully ran it on Oct. 15th 2005. John reports:
"Elbow creek is tiny and follows the side of the road the whole way. The top part is tighter, with large boulders, then it opens up but gets more continuous. I don't remember too much. There was some wood, but surprisingly little for that kind of stream. We figured some locals must have cleared it out, but we don't know if any run it regularly."
