This is the Tilton on Sunday discussion thread. Please post any questions below.

Remember the actual Trip Details are located on the Tilton on Sunday | Trip Page

Me and a friend will head down to the tilton on Sunday if it is at a decent level the bottom doesn't drop out. Anyone else up?

I'm gonna keep my eye on this one. If it stays below 3k I'm in and I'll bring Josh with me.

great! - Good chance we'd bag out if it was above 3k also. Mainly just want to touch base b/f hand so we don't drive down separately if we don't have to (our plans may change to something closer if it is just the two of us - Otherwise it's the tilton if the level is good) .

Interesting re: level.
 
I'm on the fence about playboat/creekboat. Leap of faith felt hard for me around 1000 - I intended to go right at the bottom but had some difficulty in the top part, think I rolled and just went left at the bottom cause all the water was headed that way and I wasn't sure if I could get right. All I know is that I was super happy to be upright when going around that rock at the bottom of it.
 
What's it like around 1500 - 2000? It looks like there's a good chance that's where it'll be tomorrow. . .

it's hardest around 1500, it's not high enough to wash out stuff, but sneaks aren't open yet. 2000 is a great level, surf city is in good, and the lower gorge is really fun, all the drops are just beginning to wash out and you can really fly if you don't stop to scout anything. on my last run I tried a lot of different lines. on the first big drop I got rear endered in a hole on RR at the top.
you'll like it tomorrow, levels should be pretty good...
