About Hell’s Corner Rapid

Hell’s Corner is about 500 yards long of winding Class IV. Its length makes it pretty much impossible to scout in its entirety (but can be done if you’ve got the time). Enter center, and then you’ll pretty much be keeping your eyes out for waves and holes as you make your way through. Towards the bottom of this rapid, the river bends sharply to the right. Watch out here for a grouping of boulders in the center of the river, which should be passed on the right. There’s an excellent corner pocket eddy at the very bottom of this rapid that you’ll want to catch. Just below Hell’s Corner another rapid awaits known as Fluffy Bunny by some, and as The Dragon by others.
