Hell's Gate on the South Fork Kuskokwim River
Hello, I was wondering if anyone can offer some info on floating through Hell's Gate on the South Fork Kuskokwim River? Is it portagable? If so, where is the take out point to start portaging (GPS coordinates would be nice)? At what point should you start to pull over to shore and start scouting ahead? At the beginning of the canyon? Midway through the canyon? After the canyon? Approximately how many river miles below the confluence of Styx creek/river do the rapids actually begin? What exactly does the Hell's Gate look like? Is it continuos class III whitewater for 2-3 miles, a large falls, a narrow gorge with some boulder gardens and fast moving hydraulics? If anyone can answer some of the above questions I would be very appreciative. Thanks in advance.
