Notes:

Some day someone may roll the dice and attempt to run Twisting Falls.  For everyone else Twisting Falls presents a choice: a potentially multi-hour slog up the mountain and back down, or a technically challenging traverse of a rock cliff alongside the churning, falling waters of Twisting Falls.  This photo is of the traverse, an option I would not have taken if I hadn't been with two experienced rock climbers who were comfortable carrying my boat over a route I found scary worrying only about myself! Thanks Leland and Trip!
