|Hazard is located on the rapid known as Miners rapid. You can recognize the rapid by the miners camp located high on the right bank.|
Miners is early in the run.
The hazard is a cable buried in the hole that finishes the rapid. The cable is visiable on a right bank scout. The cable used to extent the width of the river above the river. It seems now be laying just below the water surface in the hole.
A swimmer or upside down paddler would be in great danger!
