Upper canyon. Easy to see the approach to canyon, keep/land left. We walked & checked the whole canyon. Had a camp & paddled next morning through. There is a place to land after every bend, five bends. Every bend has also large wawes, which can be avoided by careful steering & staying inside on the left hand bends. No speed needed, just go with the water.

About 2 km from this point there is a ledge followed by a powerful wave train. With our water level & -speed there was no way to stop. We just kept close to the right bank. At the ledge here is a cliff on the right side. If you manage to slow down and pass the cliff within centimeters from it, you can pass the ledge an stay out of the big waves. So, after this point keep to the river right. This was the nastiest surprise on the river. Good luck with it.Photo: Camp 7/20
