Novice run on the Mongaup
August 18, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Charles Lockett and I will lead a novice run on the Mongaup Creek, which is Class II/III. You must be a current member of LVKCC, and have experience paddling in Class II+ water. Specifically, you should have run the Upper Lehigh several times and feel comfortable catching eddies, peeling out, and ferrying on it. A combat roll is not required but is desirable, as swims on one of the rapids can be lengthy and rocky.
We will meet at the DEC parking lot at 10:00 a.m. and then arrange our reverse shuttle to get gear and people to the put-in for the 11:00 a.m. release. We will hope to run the creek twice, stopping for a quick lunch in between.
We can take a few people on first descents, however you must message Charlie or me through Meetup to confirm that your experience is sufficient.
