There isn't much warm-up time on this run. Although the river has some smaller boulder gardens near the put-in, the river shortly takes off downhill like a freight train. The narrowness of the riverbed combined with a relentless gradient and very few eddies along the shore make this run seem a lot tougher than it looks when scouting from the road. Several sections are steeper than others and there are several blind corners which can contain wood.
River Description (Kayak/Canoe/Raft) A detailed description of the rapids on this run would be pointless. At medium and high water the whole run is essentially one long rapid. Most of the run is visible from the road, especially the steeper sections. If the rapids look big from the road, don't get on the run. The proximity of the road and the unstable geology make the scenery pretty marginal.
