Looking for someone that has paddled coal creek here in lewis county, says its a class III+ with an average gradient of 104fpm &&& its pretty damned close to me I would love some beta since there is none to be found on the interwebs & I would like to hit it asap!

I'd reckon that if you ran it you'd be one of the first in a while. Let us know how it goes.
The line will become apparent

soooo the creek wasnt as full as i think it should have been but there was still a lot to navigate plenty of wood all the way down but lots of eddies and pools the whole stretch so much so i didnt regret bringing a play boat. I cant believe no one has run this in a while once some more rain saturates down here itll be a regular for me. I can actually imagine it getting a bit scary for me as it was today & I was by myself. With support and more water this one would be a great adrenaline slide.
aint nobody got time for that!

You will need a mega storm to bring out the best on either.
