Cache La Poudre River - Big South

Double Trouble

Rapid Details

Name Double Trouble
Class V+

This is one the Big South's signature drops. The river cascades about 40 feet over two 20 foot tiers and terminates in a river wide hole that can best be described as, impressive. The top drop has lines down the left, center, and right. The bottom portion is a steep sloping curtain requiring a delayed boof stroke to propel you through the massive hole at the bottom. What's so great about this rapid is that even though it's large and scary, it's clean and boaters generally win or lose based on the execution of their run, rather than chance. The bottom hole is a great place to set safety.
