If I had the skills I would totally be in. I could run the Springdale/Virgin section with you though.

Doesn't the proper gauge need to be 600 before the Rangers will issue a permit for the Narrows? Maybe you are looking at the Park run gauge, if there is a different one for that section. I believe there is a min CFS for them to issue a permit for the park section too, not sure of the exact flow required but I think that's around 150cfs.

I think 600 is a max, not a min... (for the narrows).

But I also think 170 is too low for the narrows, we ran it at ~500 last year and that was about as low as I'd want to be in there

edit: should say 600 is a max for what the rangers will let you run it... I think it'd be rad at higher water.

If I had a packraft i'd run, walk the narrows at 170. I've run the park section around 200 cfs and it was a mank fest...
