This is one of the steepest and most dangerous runs in this guide. Its extreme gradient creates an astonishing sequence of Class 4, 5, and 6 boulder rapids. The river cuts its way to the New through a deep gorge of remarkable beauty, but you won’t be looking at the scenery. The action is utterly continuous, blind, and intense. Numerous undercut rocks, downed trees, and narrow offset chutes demand respect from the strongest and most experienced paddlers. Much scouting is required and you may want to portage some rapids. The first run took 10 hours!
