Dinky Waterfalls
After doing the warmup on SuperDink, (yes SuperDink is a warmup run in Cali even with 500 feet per mile drop), Dinky Waterfalls was looking to be at the perfect flow levels.

Why is Dinky a step up? Mandatory waterfalls, some of which can be scouted and then the chuck and huck portage. For me, this was harder than any drop, especially when your boat fills up with water just before the next drop.

Dinky is an amazing run! If you go, be ready to hike though thickets, have trouble being able to scout drops and maybe having to run a few things (Willies) blind unless your an amazing rock climber. But its worth the effort and a classic California run.
