Granite Creek conditions?
Has anyone done Granite Creek in Turnagain Pass this season?
I'm wondering mainly about sweepers and other hazards.
I floated from turnagain pass to six mile take-out / put in today. There were two sweepers just downstream of bertha creek that were fairly easy to avoid. Otherwise it was a fun trip. Floated it in a packraft.
Great, thanks. That's exactly what I was thinking of doing, but I didn't get to it this weekend. I'm glad someone did!
Duration of Granite Creek
When you floated in your packraft did you put in at Lyons creek or elsewhere? How long did the float take to reach the sixmile put-in / take-out?
I put in at Lyons, it took 2 hrs the first time, and 2 hrs 8 min the second time.
I did take out about a 1/2 upstream from the six mile put in. We were camped on the river.
There were two sweapers that needed to be portages around. Someone with a hand saw could easily clear a path through them though.
