  Fun Facts

Sweet creek, needs lots (LOTS!) of rain.

   Run Description [Season: Winter-Early Spring]

This creek is pushing Class V and only runs when the Wind is REALLY high. It comes into the Wind below the put-in for the lower, so it must be combined with a lower wind trip. The Wind is cranking when this is running, and although there are only really 3 rapids on the lower wind, they are HUGE at this level.

The creek is 5 miles, really good technical boulder gardens with no significant drops. The last 2 miles to the wind are the steepest, pushing 200fpm.
