The Rhondu Gorge Of The Indus

The Rhondu Gorge of the Indus

In November Dane met up with the California boys to experience a river like no other, the Rhondu gorge of the Indus. Flowing 86 miles from the valley of Skardu, it has become a river even the top kayakers of the world wonder if they feel up to the challenge. It’s got insane power flowing down steep rapids, creating huge features, making every rapid a stout after the next. It’s a river so big that the first question people get asked when they just completed the Indus, is “how many portages did you do”? Many of the worlds best kayakers often portage, usually between the 5-8 realm. This trip saw the Cali boys portage only 4 times, as well as see Dane get the lowest number of portages ever done, down to 1, by completing the first descent of the infamous Malupa rapid. It was an experience none of them will be forgetting anytime soon, and it’s just one of the places that it’s hard to believe we get to experience with our kayaks.

High Water Middle Kings

Dane Jackson takes a run down Middle Kings.

With less than a week left in California, the Middle Fork of the Kings was looking like it just wasn’t going to drop to low enough levels to be able to commit before I left. But somehow it managed to drop just barely into it’s window of runnable, although high, right in time. Ben Coleman, Carson Lindsay, and myself decided to head in with some of the juicier flows than most people would start hiking for.

West Cherry – Day 1

West Cherry - Day 1
West Cherry – Day 1

One of the greatest runs in the world without a doubt is West Cherry in California. It not only has one of the most famous big slides, Graceland. But it also has so much epic whitewater and the most amazing scenery. Since Michael Ferraro and myself were going to be the first people into the ultra classic this year, we decided to do a one day. The reason being is to keep our boats lighter incase water levels were higher than we expected. Once we finally got to the river after the hike it ended up being high water, but nothing we couldn’t handle. It ended up being a huge day of hiking, kayaking, and just enjoying one of the greatest places to go with a boat.
