Best at 1.8 on the gauge or more. Warm water. Good run in winter. Can be done in two hours with no scouting. little Araatiatia has water sieving to the left of the narrow section. Could be serious for a swimmer. First noticed this two years ago. Last drop go left to avoid under cut on right. Often back loops above 1.5 but rarely holds.
