Forward motion, headfirst & horizontal to gravity!
The Cheoah has a couple of releases per year and since work has kept me out of the river this season, I'm itching to get back in the water.
The Cheoah is a great class IV run. I don't run the entire river as the upper section is choked full of trees and root balls. I stick with the final two miles where it is more open and the gradient is higher. Most of the lower section is continuous boulder drops and the two miles drop at 106 and 141.
Meet at the take out and then we'll shuttle up to above Bear Creek Falls, scout that drop and then get in and go. After the first lap, I'm willing to do a second lap if anyone else wants to. The release goes until 5:00 pm
