It's worth scouting the two big drops before putting on, this can be done via Iman Cemetery Rd. Some routes have no tresspassing signs, but there are ways to get a good look.
Downstream of the put in bridge is 1/4 mile of warm up before the first falls. This is a 30 footer that is run middle. Below this first falls the river bends right as it goes over some more bedrock. Get out on the left after the bend, and well before entering the low angle slide into Money Drop to get one last look from the left side.
Money Drop is a high speed, low angle ramp of 50 yards or so into a vertical drop of variable height. You can typically count on it being over 50' tall. It can be tricky to set the correct angle, resulting in many chaotic descents of the drop. Recently (2016) the lip seems to have cleaned up and people no longer seem to have so much issue.
Andrew Bradley dealt with the tricky pre-2016 lip by boofing as big as possible. While Andrew says his hit was soft, this technique is not recommended, at least one person has broken their back here.

The level was about 10.10 feet on the Rock Creek gauge under the Ryan Allen Rd Bridge when Andrew and John ran it.
You can use the EF Lewis gauge to guestimate when Rock Creek will run.
That gauge had a little under 2000 cfs when Andrew and John ran Money Drop.
Danimal rafted this one too. Amazingly, he landed upright in the raft, unhurt. The level was pretty low that day, around 9.5'.
The falls was measured at 51' high the day he did it.
