Rapid Details

Name Island Rapid
Class II to II+

2 small islands split the river into 3 channels as the river widens slightly here.  This creates a shallow entrance into 1 of the 3 channels.  Most right channel is probably the calmest with the most left channel the most turbulent.  Any route is not going to be harder than class II water.
