Anyone interested in hitting up the green this afternoon?  I am thinking around 3 or 3:30 for a lap through the main gorge.

KP park or the bridge to paradise . . I suppose the 'upper gorge' is the proper name.

Yes, that is the Upper Green and the skill levels required for the Upper vs. the Lower is notable. Personally speaking, I wouldn't feel comfortable taking a class III boater on the Upper at 2K+...
 
I know I can't make a 3:00/3:30 meet up time today, but if I hustled home after work I could potentially make a 4-5pm meetup time. If not, the Green should be running at a healthy flow all weekend, and depending on whether or not I head to Wenatchee this weekend, I'd be game to run it tomorrow or Sunday.
 
Keep me posted and I hope you find someone available to run it today-- it's a good flow

My recollection is that the Elger has already styled the Upper in the high 3K's. :)  I think everyone's on the same page as far as solid back-up generally being a good thing on this run though, if I were doing it with just one other person I'd want that person to be better than I am.  Fortunately that still leaves a rather large pool of paddlers to choose from. :P
It's all fun and games until someone loses a paddle.

*HA*! Totally didn't make the connection of "melger"... sorry Michael. I wasn't referring to you specifically, just making a generalized comment. Nothing more.
 
Irene you are part of that pool whether you think you are, or not

Probably too late but.. there is a post by osmelendez wanting to get out. his ph# is in the post and he's headed up there. Won't probably make it until four. Anyway, Hope you all can connect. He'll probably be at the put in around 4.

LOL, thanks Gwendolyn!  On the good days, maybe... :)  We ended up not coordinating a run for today, hope osmelendez found someone to boat with.

did you make it out today? I took my play boat out on the upper green and it was a freaking SICK run! though I must admit I was a bit tense running it in my play boat. highly recommend this level.
