Arkaig main grade 4 rapid

Post by chrisdickinson »

Rhodhodendron bush now seriously impinging on low water line down the main class 4 rapid.
Bushes on the island are now getting in the way of a run to the powerful hole.
If I get a chance I'll go up and cut it back, unless someone gets there first.
Take care, it turned over one of my paddlers yesterday.
Also a lodged tree on the nice wave train lower down the river has a projecting branch
right over the end of the wavetrain which accounted for two capsizes yesterday.
Also needs cut back.
Chris :-)
A/WWSR 4/5star (river & sea) with the best!
