Crux 1 East Lyn Gorge

This rapid has changed - people have been getting vertically pinned in the slot river right if you miss the main channel. Please be aware of this and set-up the right portection on this rapid if you think your not going to hit the right line.

If possible get someone on the rock between the main drop and the right channel. Maybe , this person could stop a paddler going into the right channel . However , as always , decisions will be made on the day.
