Paul Guinea, Eric Arllington, Matt King and myself all ran the Truss last weekend. It was Matt's first time running it, and he did really well. It was a little exciting seeing him surfing a hole in the first rapid! But he worked out and had a flawless run down the rest of the river. I walked Lower Zig-zag and BZ, while Paul had a no portage descent of the run. I ran Big Brother for the first time, which I was happy about. I had a clean line, upright and away from the cave. Double Drop was at a fun level. I think everybody made it through that upright. We didn't scout so Matt had a blind first run of Double Drop. The rest of the run went great and was fun but not super eventful. Paul and Eric ran lower Zig-zag which doesn't look very bad right now. Here is the video.

Little White video

This is the video from Ryan Morgan and my first trip down the fabled Little White Salmon.  The level was 2.5 feet which was a clean level for everything except Island and a drop right above it.  Spirit also looked very clean at this level though we didn't run it.  The left side of Chaos did look a little weird but the right side line didn't look super retentive, and you could still make it down the left.   Here is the video

Name Change

I changed the name of the blog do to the fact that I am no longer in high school. I have started college at Western Oregon University. I don't know if the new name fits, but it is going to be the new name. I also think the picture fits. Credit goes to Aubrey Russell for the picture.
Here are some pictures of Lower Lewis falls at low water and high water.  
high water taken in June low water taken in September
And Upper Lewis falls.  They have both been run this high, though the Lower looks a lot worse to me at this level.
and this is the Upper falls the day we ran it.
