Major Hazard on the Blue

Post by Opes » Sat Jun 27, 2015 7:21 am

The drop leading into Ford Hole now has a very sketchy hazard. The manhole that formed the eddy at the top of the drop on river left has been washed off of the main line. There is now a crazy hole where the manhole was that would kill someone if they end up in it. The manhole box itself has washed down river a short distance and is now a pin hazard. It is also on river left on the eddy line. Run the river through the wave train on the right and these hazards are no concern.

Man, thanks for the heads up. Sounds like it's really nasty on the left now.

Think it would be worth posting about the new hazard here: http://www.kansaswhitewater.org/RiverDe ... RiverID=20 ?
