Echols Dorm: Brick Wall By Side Door
James River - Richmond
Richmond offers a unique white water run with its various rapids and skyline in the background. We’ll run this section of the James as it flows alongside downtown Richmond with some class 2 and 3 rapids (at current flow), including area famous Hollywood Rapid. In order to be qualified for this trip you must have taken the intro trip with me or have similar experience, have lots of prior river experience in at least class 2 rapids, and have a decent flat water roll. So that I can screen your experience you will be added to the waitlist upon joining, then I will move you to the trip list if you are qualified. If you have any questions please contact me via email at email@example.com or cell at (434) 962-9737.
I will already be in Richmond paddling the section above this one (class 1-2; posted as an adventure – please join me!) so have entered Echols at 3:30 as a meeting place/time to be consistent with the other adventure, however, if you’d rather not paddle that section you are welcome to meet me at Reedy Creek (probably at around 7:30).
At current level (~3.8 ft as of 7/20) is nearly too low. My cut-off is 3.5 ft but there is a decent chance of widespread rain on Monday, so hopefully we get enough to bring the river up. I’ll make the judgement call Monday night.
I am NOT “leading” on this trip, I am only coordinating some logistics and transportation to the river, you are responsible for your own safety and you agree to have read and will abide by the American Whitewater Safety Code http://www.americanwhitewater.org/content/Wiki/safety:start?
