Rio Nevado – Pucon First Descent

Today we dropped into the box canyon of the Rio Nevado. The drops were large the flow low and the fun factor high. Here are a few pics and video for you to check out.

Below this series was the really large falls. Best described as nasty ass entrance into a 40 footer. Hilleke shit for sure.
We portaged the falls and dropped into the lower gorge.

I ran the entrance drop, ducked tree, pitoned, folded kayak nose. No one followed. Ran second falls was sweet, no photo. Ran a couple of more, took out. Was awesome.

Sucked life out of greenies.
