River Description

Bruce Bradshaw shared:
This is a nice wilderness run. There is one steep drop in bedrock before getting into the narrow canyon. The final mile is pretty continuous with one tight spot for rafts. At 1100 CFS @ 30 mile Bridge, I would call this pushy III.

Ran this at 170cfs - a bit scrapy but still a fine way to spend the day.
