Certainly the West's most famous river is the Colorado River. The Colorado comes alive at the Continental Divide and begins it's 1,440 mile journey through 3 states before ending at the Gulf of Califonia. Gore Canyon Class V is considered one of the TOP 3 Most Difficult commercial runs in the United States.
* Previous Class V experience is a must! Client must have participated on a Pine Creek trip with us previously that year, or participate on a "check-out" run during the same week (e.g., afternoon 1/2 day trip on Shoshone 3-Peat For $30.00)
Clients are swim-tested, and taught special safety skills required for participation. Guides fully evaluate each client to ensure their ability to participate on this trip. The trip is very strenuous, as portaging and scouting over steep and uneven terrain is required.
* Only those individuals who are physically fit should consider this run.
