River Description

This run includes 78' Sahalie Falls, first run by Shannon Carroll in 1998 at which time it was the world waterfall record. Her run is featured as the concluding sequence in the video "Over the Edge" by Falling Down Productions. There is a second large falls on this run, Koosah Falls, which has been run. More typically however, those who paddle this section pass on the big drops and take-out above Koosah Falls.
