The distance between rapids varies from 100 meters to 2 km’s. The Gorge itself is approximately 400ft deep at the put-in point and 750ft at the take out point.

The morning section of the river is classified as Grade 5 “extremely difficult, long and violent rapids, steep gradients, big drops and pressure areas”.
