Gorge Entrance

Rapid Details

Name Gorge Entrance
Class V-

If you've had your hands full up until now, scurry up the bank on the river left because the gorge is the crux of the run.  If you're feeling good, then get ready to enjoy this beautiful mini gorge with a fun set of rapids.  I don't know if there's an official name for the entrance rapid, but there's a notable set of drops at the entrance to the gorge and terminates in the pool above 57 Chevy.  Various lines are avaiable, but the last section usually goes best using an autoboof on the left side.
