|There is a river wide tree in the middle of a rapid called Former Undercut Left, class III+ See the Creekin' write up. At around 800cfs boat scouting from the top was not enough visually to tell it was a river wide tree. The river left 3/4ths of the tree was just under water with no visible branches sticking up.|
It looked Runnable at our flows. Boof over it on the left or on the right between some branches landing on more branches. I walked not worth it. My friend boofed it on the right but said it was super sketch for a class V boater. He landed on some branches in the foam pile. At lower flows it will be unrunable for sure.
In the CA creeks write-up there is a picture of the tree still standing! Its the biggest tree on the river left in this picture. Looks like it blew over and never moved. http://cacreeks.com/photos/cos-mf12.jpg
