Aros/Yaqui - Lower Aros/Yaqui


Rapid Details

Name Morita
Class III to IV

Perhaps the largest rapid on the lower Rio Aros, there are generally two choices for passage (RL and RR). The left side is a relatively narrow chute (especially at low water!) that is Class III. On the right side, next to the cliff, is a single large drop into a (generally) flushing hole with swirly water below (approaching easy Class IV). At high water, the run-out is a long Class II.


Scout from Eddy on RL or cliff on RR.
