I snuck in a lap of Slaughterhouse -- near Aspen -- with Jim Harris this morning. So stinking much fun! Fun, fast, engaging and rewarding, but never felt scary or dangerous.
Pretty much my favorite kind of paddling: "class fun". Might have been the best run of the year thus far.
It's a few miles of continuous III+ that then mellows to III for the last few miles. Lots of little surf waves, plus I lost count of how many rock/hole boofs there were.
~900cfs on the RF @ Emma gauge = ~650cfs in the river. These flows might last through the end of the week. Get it if you can!
