Ron Cameron at the top of the ramp above the Falls of Shin, 1986. The Black Hole' is behind the paddler. With a short boat a breakout inot theBlack Hole scares the tourists and sets you up for a good line down the ramp. Obviously this is a high risk strategy, especially with a high flow. Ron is paddling a homemade boat and paddle! Photo D. Finlayson.
