The Royal Gorge of the American River – Cali Love Tour ‘16
According to Evan Garcia The Royal Gorge section of the North fork of the American river is the best waterfall run in the world. However with a very finicky headwaters and horrible snow conditions, Royal hadn’t seen a legit descent in years. They loaded up the truck and headed up Donner pass knowing the level was high and knowing the weather was going to be hot! What they received was nothing less than the most spectacular Royal trip of all time. High flows made for soft landings and high consequences as we ran everything we could deem possible. (Aniol even opened up the last remaining un-run drop of the Canyon, you can see his descent of that cracked out 30 footer at the end of the 1st section) Witness Galen and Aniol logging the highest water descents of Scott’s Drop and some crazy, beautiful, wild, and incredible lines on every drop of this amazing river.
