That is bad ass. Is it just running that high from runoff right now or did you time a surge? I think I read somewhere the someone took an actual raft down that once.

I think it was an early runoff before they started taking water for irrigation. It had been teetering around 200cfs for a week so we decided to give it a go cause it probably wouldn't get any higher.

Awesome. I like the quick hitting video recap. Looks like a blast!

I ran this with some friends in IKs maybe 10 years ago. I don't remember what the flow was. It must have been lower because I don't think it was class IV for us. And we didn't have to avoid any cows! Haha.
