Notes8.5 was the best level Ive seen so far. Still no downstream movement - upper end will probably be limited by eddy space, but at 8.5 there was plenty of room to hang out, and actually easier to get out on the rock. I found the room off the second ledge, and experienced some scary stability in there.

NotesLocals confirm that 8 is very good. Deep easy rides. Still looking for the top end. 8.5 maybe? Sadistic Magician is certainly the most consistent feature on the James, and has the widest flow range.

NotesWent back out at 6.8 and it was still giving up good rides at lower water levels. I had to work it a bit more to stay down, but was getting pretty consistent 5+ second rides in a very low cut Bigfoot. I dont think its going to stay in much longer. Would like to get back a 6.5 to see it its still worth it.
