Notes:

For a "sneak" this one is full on .  .  .  After passing through this slot one falls towards a mostly underwater flake of rock by turning 90 degrees right then a few feet later 90 degrees left to squeeze by a river right wall of rock.  The excitement is not yet over as ten yards later the intrepid paddler must catch an eddy to avoid getting swept under a log spanning what used to be a much larger eddy.  After catching the eddy the rest of the drop must be run, an act that seems almost an afterthought after all the adreneline burned negotiating the "sneak!"
