Phi Psi Parking Lot
James River - Glasgow To Snowden (Balcony Falls)
Let’s go paddle Balcony Falls before the Creekathon! This run is a mostly class II with one class II+/III rapid that is easily walkable if you don’t feel comfortable running it. Balcony is about and hour and a half away and is an awesome, beautiful run; I’m so excited to get back down there!
This trip is suitable for anyone who has attended Dave Clark’s intro sessions at Walnut, felt comfortable there and wants to get out onto some whitewater. A roll is not a prerequisite, but comfort doing a wet exit is.
After we paddle the run, we’ll head back to Walnut Creek Park for the Creekathon/Cookout. If anyone can’t go to the Creekathon, we can sort those logistics out too.
***Make sure you also join the adventure for the Creekathon so they know how many people are coming, but indicate that you will be arriving there with this adventure***
We’ll meet at the Phi Psi Parking lot on Rugby by Mad Bowl at 9am Saturday morning, which hopefully should put us on the water by 11. This will give us more than enough time to get back to Walnut Creek in time for food.
Right now I’m setting the max number of people at 5 because thats how many people/boats my car can carry, but hopefully someone with another car will sign up so we can set up shuttle (instead of biking/running it) and take more people. I’ll let people in off the waitlist as people with cars sign up.
