At 2600cfs, the run starts off mellow enough with about 3 miles of easy water before the excitement starts. At this level the run is fun and offers some big water. There are a couple of straight forward class 3 rapids before the 'big' rapid where a landslide has greatly constricted the river. This rapid is failrly long (.5 mile) with a couple of holes up high, then a nearly river wide drop (Daisy's Hole) which at 2600 was Class IV+ or V-, then more rough water before the river divides into two channels (in 2008 there were avoidable logs at the top of the braid), the right one being a bit more favorable. The rest of the run down the the confluence is straight forward.

Significantly lower flows would likely make this run Class III+ and higher flows could make it harder than Class IV.
