River Description

Description and photos of the run on Oregon Kayaking.

The signature drop is a 60+-footer and you can read a description of the drop at Oregon Kayaking. As Brad Roberts says, "Just because it's been run, doesn't mean it's runnable." The date of this First Descent was apparently 12/9/2001.

Lat/longitude coords are approximate, to give the intrepid surfer an idea of where to find this gnarlsome drop.
