Eagle Creek

We had an epic day up on Eagle creek saturday.  This mission was about the first raft descent of Eagle Creek.  The day was led by Hans Hooman who did all the legwork and made the calls to get this together.  He was kind enough to share his descent with the group and we all had a super fun day.  Everything except Metlako and the narrow cascade below it got run.  Here are some teaser pics, I will have more up this week including the full report, video, and pictures.

Jacob,

You might want to talk to the guys at Andy and Bax or look at the pics in the basement. There are some pics of them running Punchbowl in a variety of craft. Not sure if one is a raft or not.

uh oh, I will do that. Thanks for the heads up.

I emailed Andy and Bax and they said the closest thing they have to a raft is an IK going off it. So it sounds like the claim is still good.

Nice job. I guide rafts on the Black River in New York and we've rafted the Bottom Moose River, but nothing quite as vertical as these! I think Agers Falls is a 18 footer, that's as close as we got. Way to give'er!
