Sixth Water C gorge

Post by brightonb on Tue 07 Jun 2011, 8:57 pm

Did it with Shoey today. Too much elfing for our taste. Some wild and tricky drops in Celestial Gorge though. I'm truly impressed that Scotticus did that solo in a pack raft at higher water.

Pulled this off the EF run description. Got some questions...

I ran this again, in my packraft, in May of 2011 at about 150 cfs up top and 300 cfs down below the Fifthwater confluence. It was much more juicy but managable. There was little wood. Diamond fork gage serves as a barometer of Lower Sixth during spring runoff. Multiply its reading by two-thirds

The Diamond Fork gauge is at 420. Calc with 2/3 would be 280 cfs.

How in the hell did scotticus get a pack raft down that at this level, solo? There was barely enough water for my creeker to scrape down it.
