Sheep Creek - A cold, remote, medium volume river through beautiful rocky mountain scenery.
The run starts with 45 minutes of flat water to get you warmed up and provide a little time to watch for moose and other wildlife along the way. Be aware that many of the rapids on this river are created by rock ledges which create retentive holes that have dished out their fair share of beat downs. A hike out may be very arduous depending on mine traffic as this run is more or less in the middle of nowhere.
The fun starts as the river begins to drop at the Horn Rock rapid(III+) and becomes fairly continuous. Not long after the start of the whitewater the river passes under a large concrete bridge and enters a short canyon section which ends as the river constricts into the the Grade IV Cauldron.
At the cauldron the river is forced through a slot ~8m wide which often catches large logs. Scout/portage on the right.
Below the Cauldron are a number of ledge drops before the river enters the Grade V canyon(often log choked), after running or portaging the Cauldron eddy river left and hike up the steep hill ~200m to the 4×4 track and scout/portage the canyon.
Below the Canyon you'll find plenty of fun grade IV boogie water, a few more ledges (including the very retentive Heidi's ledge), and some mellow bits between with lots of one shot waves.
