This stretch reminds me of the west prong in the smokies. Ran it back in 2001 but I would call it
4-5 with no 5+ and no portages. I am sure that logs could cause portages from time to time.

I love this run. It's steep and continuous and class V-V+ - one of the steepest runs you'll find.
If you're not familiar with the lines, you should scout everything on your way down. There are
numerous lines that look like the best line from above but have wood or rock or cables in them, but
there is always a clean line as well. As long as you scout first, those things aren't problems.
As far as I can remember, we've run this as low as about 6000 on the sky@gold bar gauge and as high
as 8500-9000 - on spring snowmelt. Lower levels would probably be ok, but it would be damaging to
your boat. Higher levels would be ok, but the eddies get much smaller and farther apart.
