Greasy Pliers

As straightforward as it gets, this is a fun read and run rapid. Pick a line and go for it!

According to this article, this rapid was named after Bus Hatch’s pliers that he used to pick up hot dutch ovens. Who’s Bus Hatch? Bus (which was a nickname that was originally “Busy” eventually shortened to just “Bus”) was the first commercial outfitter in the United States. This led to him starting his company, Hatch River Expeditions, which is still around today.

This video shows the rapid at ~7,000 CFS. Fun, splashy, any line goes.
