This is a run for the adventurous expert boater. Log-choked channels and boulder sieves abound. Allow lots of time for scouting and/or portaging, go with a small, solid group, and bring your headlamp and bivouac gear. Also, be prepared to bounce off a lot of rocks. After an easy mile, the bottom drops out and the creek descends 210 feet in the next 0.3 mile (that is 700 fpm). You must decide what is runnable and what must be portaged with difficulty along the right bank. The creek tapers off a bit after a log-choked drop around an island (the small left channel is probably the easiest), and soon the flow increases by a third. Very steep boulder gardens are intermittent between easier stretches. Logjams are very frequent. Some can be run; most are usually portaged with difficulty. Character: old growth, clear-cut, canyon.
