Kinda looks like Crazy Creek falls here in Harpers Ferry, unrunnable, unless the potomac is up around 20' plus, pads out the landing zone. Good luck running that horrendous looking thing!
erik you are nuts. that is the mankiest drop of all the potomac creeks, and thats saying something. you would want the potomac to be flooded to raise the level of the/create a hint of a pool at the bottom so you land in water...I doubt it is ever run. sucessfully.
Wendy Run Falls maybe runnable despite a very tricky approach. The current pushes hard right to left and spreads the flow over shallow rocks at the lip of the drop. You would want to be on the inside right corner and fall into the slot next to the sloping slide on the top left porsion of the falls. You would then be prapelled ten feet onto a leftward sloping rock for a sumwhat hard clapper and then rickashaded right where you would want to be into the landing pool. Minus the long wedged in the middle of the falls and all the boulders in the landing pool that make it to shallow to even land flat into, it could be done with some rearanging. The hieght of the falls is somewhere around 35 - 40 feet.
