Red Rocks - Intermediate Paddlers

Trip type: 
Whitewater Kayaking
Difficulty: 
Medium
Start date: 
Thursday, 7 December 2017 - 1:00pm to 7:00pm

Hi All,

With river levels pumping up again after rain in the upper Bidgee catchment, a trip from Pine Island to Kambah Pool should be great for intermediate/advanced paddlers. This will be a grade 3 paddle with a few portages. We need several advanced paddlers to join the crew if we are to include a few inexperienced paddlers. The final crew will need to be sufficiently skilled for this trip to go ahead. You will need a reliable roll to participate.

For recent river heights see http://www.kayakcanberra.com/heights/

Bring the usual gear plus strong footwear. 

Costs: 
$5 for fuel to drivers and $2 kayak and gear hire
Intended plan: 
Meet at ANU boat shed at 1300 to load kayaks and gear. Drive to Kambah Pool for car shuttle. Drive to Pine Island to start paddle by 1430. The paddle should take 2-3 hours depending on crew.
Departure and intended return times: 
Depart 1330 Return by 1900
Local knowledge: 
Andrew Collins and I have paddled this section many times.
5 slots left.
