If anyone is interested doing the rap in below Ricks today.Going in with a friend visiting from out of town  meeting in Bonney Lake about 11am.  Even though a spike is predicted today the gragh is still flat an on the low side. Soes there's lots of room for rising .

How necessary is the Alonzo take out? If you take out at the Bennett take out how much further is it?

Also, is there a fixed line there or does one need to bring their own rope?

His takeout is great cause the river goes from class 4 to class 2 right at his property.from there to the Bennett takeout is about another 5miles or so of breaded class 2 so it still works.    
 
Just saw a big reduction in predict. graph to just a bump so should be a mellow low level today. leaving house now so no more internety.

no fixed rope . Bring your own .
 
Todays level was about 500 to 550. Wood is definitly in play throughout the run.lots of dodging going on. Also the Classic canyon rapid was clean but in the mellow water runout there is a logjam must portage. Luckily we were able to get out above the wood in a small eddy. higher water would make that spot way Bad !   The last rapid "the Undercutter" has wood in there!

Technically, I believe you would want to temporarily fix your own rope then retrieve it when you shuttle back to the get-in.

don't make your life complicated, just go with D1 the first time! In fact, I like to go with D1 every time!

and if you take j.s. make sure to practice prior, hehe
