the first half mile it's a series of nice class IV rapids with good
pools, the longest being before the main show at Gateway. Just above
the restaurant is a long boulder garden with several moves and big
eddies, but no pools. This is the rapid that used to be harder, until
some time ago a rock shifted making the crux move much safer. Most
class IV kayakers will still scout this drop their first time down.
