How to run Pure Screaming Hell Rapid

Pure Screaming Hell puts a huge exclamation point to cap off the Gauley River. It’s a big Class V, with a massive hit at the bottom, known as the Hell Hole. Enter left of center, and stay away from the right bank, which has a decent sieve. The left side of the Hell Hole is a bit more forgiving than running the center and right sides. Below this hole is a section of calm water, so you’ll have time to clean up if there is carnage.
