water wacko  (9/4/2012)
is that the double drop that changed?
AdamG  (9/4/2012)
It was my first time in there but that's what I was told. We portaged the entrance because of the mank in the foreground, more water and it would be OK

Yeah, the fin shaped rock used to be a boof move. Just go left of it. What was water level Adam?
AdamG  (9/7/2012)
About 345 cfs on the Ecology gauge. Would be hard pressed to go back at that level

that doesn't look like the double-boof to me. I recall it being straightish through the boofs with a little headwall on river left at the bottom. on dan mccain's video, the double boof is at 1min 15sec. Note the raft bashes through a hole that used to be the first boof then goes over the second boof. This is below Cave Rapid.

Which one is the cave rapid?
chipmaney  (4/23/2013)
I don't know but the big picture you of yours above looks pretty cavey. I recognize it as the first major Class V rapid and is the only must-run. This rapid is not fun nor very reflective of the overall character of the run.

I should start putting up raw footage so you can see the whole run. I left a lot fo stuff out on the Elkhorn clip that I posted.
