Escalante Falls

Rapid Details

Name Escalante Falls
Class V

This drop looks big and burly.  At higher flows the line is way wider and significantly easier. In high water years I've seen people stake out here and lap it over and over again with totally clean lines.  At low water the line is thin and people frequently fall backwards off the left side.  At any level this the falls is full of hazards.  It can be portaged fairly easily on river right, but having a second person to help lower boats will make the job easier.
