Cache La Poudre River - Big South


Rapid Details

Name Slideways
Class V

This is my favorite rapid on the run because it combines almost all the disciplines of kayaking into one rapid.  Run a boulder garden at the top, boof a 4 foot ledge through a small hole/seam that wants to feed you into a dangerous slot on the left.  Next, charge a glorious 8 foot spout boof and eddy out on the right.  Ferry back over to a small eddy on river left and set up for the last ramp into a sticky hole.
