This place has potential for some pretty crazy cool stuff downriver, not to mention heapings of tall crack boulders. And that's just in River Left! Definitely worth checking out, and hopefully it'll get some more traffic in the future. Be prepared to get your feet wet, though; the river level changes, but when I went it was high enough that there was no safe and dry path. Judicious use of sandbars helps, though. 1 day ago
