Overhanging Rock

Rapid Details

Name Overhanging Rock
Class V-

This rapid's namesake is derived from the promiment overhanging boulder on the right shore midway through the rapid.  Navigate the mank pile up top and catch the river right eddy above the squeeze between two b oulders.  At lower flows, thread your way another 10 yards downstream and catch the eddy on river left.  This eddy provides a perfect setup to squeeze between a rooster tail and the overhanging rock.  Hit the slide below it with left to right momentum in order to avoid a piton at the bottom.  A few more manky ledges below will deliver you to more manky boogie water.
