Looking for anyone going out during the week on class 3 or less. Mon. and Wed. are a little more problematic for me, but the rest of the days I'm free. This goes for every week. I work nights so I get to most places noonish. I'm in the Tacoma area. Text me if you want to hit a river..

why not!

  Yup.  I'll be in Enumclaw tomorrow afternoon.  Perhaps meet at KP at 3:pm?  This is tentative, but I think I can make this work.

I want to do the Upper Green tomorrow night after work. I can be at Paradise by 3:30.
If the Green drops out I would be in for a playboat or speed/creekboat run on the MM.

I haven't done the upper yet. Is it a solid 3 at this level? or 4?    :( I did the mm once at a lower level..   I'll pm you. .. oh, and feel free to txt or call (number is @ the top of the page.) I probably won't be up till 12, it's been a late night at work.

The Upper Green is a solid III with IV drops and IV skills needed. I wont sandbag this run, it is a bad place to swim...

I'm trying to get in one run a week on the SF Stilly mid week. Usually on Tues or Wed.

I will continue to post trips here on the trip schedule when I do.

At moderate levels, (5.5 ft to 6) it is a fairly easy going class 3 run with a couple spots you may consider 3+. You should have a fairly reliable roll for this run (or any class 3) as it is shallow in places and you don't want to be upside down for long.

As levels go higher the difficulty increases... i'd say its solid 3+ at 6.5 feet and above 7 feet its pushing 4 so I would stick with the lower levels at first if you are just now getting used to class 3 whitewater.

Awesome. Will keep watch. I'm in the Tacoma area so it's a bit of a drive.

I totally respect that, but when you are ready, I will be glad to guide you down. It is a really fun run once you get comfortable in that type of moderate class IV...
