I totally agree. The old cable would certainly make this crossing a lot better. Although the rafts may not like being "clothes-lined" as they go down river.....
Thx for the info. We are having a bit of a debate in my hiking group about this. Getting one of the rafts to take us across would be ideal but I am not sure waiting a day or two would be a great option. I will have to review the packraft idea. I have never packed a raft before but that may be the way to go.
I may need to pick your brain a little bit if we decide to packraft. Not sure about the weight on a trip like this so I will have to research the options.
I am going to dig into this a little deeper. It sounds like this could be a pretty awesome trip if I can figure out the crossing. Thanks!
