We then reached some cool low volume boofs like this one.Chris Tretwold Photo.
The gorge started to get a little deeper and steeper we came upon this sweet Double Drop.
Boofs like this don't suck.

After some cool boogie and mini gorges, the Creek got quite a bit steeper indeed. We came upon this, and of course Chris Tretwold fired up some stout wood removal by walking across the big log, then sawing a smaller log in half so we could run the stuff that came below.
It was definetly brown.

Shane getting a nice boof into the pinch, stylie! Shortly after these quality drops, there was another waterfall in the 25-30ft range with a weird crack entrance that then proceeded to land on rocks. With higher flow, it would probably go, but the rest of the creek would be terrifying.

The creek then proceeded to throw a few walled-out, woodblocked smaller drops, so we had a couple proper BC portages.Up, out of the gorge, then yes right back down in through spikey plants and moss-covered rocks.
We then proceeded to meet the bridge that we had decided to take out at. We started the day at 8, and ended at 7:30 or so, it was a solid day of kayaking indeed.
Here is a short video I put together of the day, Check it out
Overall the creek was not quite a classic due to the amount of work required, but there were some great waterfalls and beautiful scenery.
