We took one look at this multi-tiered, sparkling white, bedrock rapid and said, "We gotta run it!" But there was a problem. At the very end of the series of drops, the creek was funneled into a deep boiling slot, slightly larger than the width of a boat. We thought a boat would probably fit through the slot OK, but if it didn't, the strong current might make extraction difficult. With safety setup, and a head-high log blocking the exit from the eddy above the slot, both of us were able to safely stop by running up onto some shallow rocks. At higher flows the slot would probably not be as much of a issue.
