Hiking up several miles yields non stop class 3-4 creeking with the last 3/4 mile sporting some serious drops. First is a cool multi tier waterfall series of around 20 feet, then the creek enters a tight little canyon. Right below a sticky 8 foot ledge is Kick Yer Dog Falls, a drop that looks like it was imported from the Raven's Fork Gorge. It is a twenty foot bouncy waterfall right into a super sticky five foot ledge hole, snaking right into a thirty foot slide with piton potential. The run out is in a hurry to say the least.
Below here is class 4 with one slide rapid and then the final manky drop into the confluence with Thunderhead Prong. As always, wood is always moving around in streams like this, so keep your head up and the eddys in sight.
Looked at it the same day kirk ran it. There is
about a mile of III-IV-ish boogie, with a double-
tiered class V set of drops, above the really
gnarly drops, but this section needs tons of
water to run. It probably wont be running unless
the half mile below Kick Yer Dog is really
ran from falls above kick yer dog down today. good beefy level. kick yer dog is one heck of a fun run. Hatter ran from the bottom of kick yer dog down with me. good class III+-IV. no wood below kick yer dog but some wood in the first part of the falls. will submit pictures soon.
