Cache La Poudre River - Big South

Cool World

Rapid Details

Name Cool World
Class V+

A class IV boulder garden separates Fantasy Flight from Cool World.  Don’t get lulled into the innocuous looking entrance to Cool World.  Scout on river left and take a good look at the “lobster trap” and some subtle undercuts that lurk below before committing to this rapid.  It usually goes better than it looks, but the consequences of a blown line can be bad.  If you portage this drop, at least enjoy the 8 foot ledge at the bottom.
