 +Please take the follow description as what it looked like at the time of writing. ​ The river can change drastically from year to year.  ​
  
 The run starts off with a mellow class II float for the first 2 km.  Once you starting coming out of a horseshoe corner, the waves and pace of the river picks up (class IV).  It is possible to scout from the island at the end of the bend (take out high on the island). ​ Best line is tight to the right side of the island skirting the edge of the massive hole on the right wall.  Work left across the diagonal waves and out cropping will force you right again. ​ Then work hard to left to avoid a very retentive hole 15ft up stream of the house size boulder in the middle of the river. The run starts off with a mellow class II float for the first 2 km.  Once you starting coming out of a horseshoe corner, the waves and pace of the river picks up (class IV).  It is possible to scout from the island at the end of the bend (take out high on the island). ​ Best line is tight to the right side of the island skirting the edge of the massive hole on the right wall.  Work left across the diagonal waves and out cropping will force you right again. ​ Then work hard to left to avoid a very retentive hole 15ft up stream of the house size boulder in the middle of the river.
