Cliff Mountain Rapid

Rapid Details

Name Cliff Mountain Rapid
Class II

An easy class II just below the putin awaits boaters.  Follow the main flow down just right of center.  Beware of a decent size hole in the upper portion of the rapid - either pull left of it or hang on - seen quite a few unsuspecting people get tossed out right here (mostly from not paying attention).  There are some big roller coaster waves at normal summer flows, make sure to get in the wave train.
