This is a short but fun run from Idledale to Morrison. The run is in a rocky creekbed with unrelenting gradient. Though the rapids are continuous with few eddies, it offers a great introduction to creeking with relatively easy moves and tame consequences compared to solid class V runs, but has enough action to keep even the most seasoned class V creekboaters entertained.
Weather on the river today will be mostly sunny and hot, with a high near 97. east southeast wind 7 to 10 mph, with gusts as high as 16 mph.
