Green River - Split Mountain

Moonshine Rapid

Rapid Details

Name Moonshine Rapid
Class II+ to III
Description

This rapid begins almost immediately after you enter split mountain.  It contains a fairly good sized hole across the river near the cliff on river right.  At high water this rapid gets pretty big and can easily flip rafts that aren't lined up right.  Even at lower flows, IK's and smaller craft can get worked in Moonshine.  After the hole are some fun waves.  Down river further is a large rock in the middle of the river.  You can pass it on either side.  Some class II water continues around the corner.

Scout

Line up and hit it.  Scouting would be tough but could be done from the large eddy above the rapid on river left.  There is no scout trail however.
