Pinball Rapid Lower, New River Gorge

SHARE

INFORMATION

RAPID NAME: Pinball

RAPID RATING: Class III

RIVER SECTION: Lower New River Gorge - Thurmond to Cunard

Welcome to the The Gorge! Pinball will greet you as your first rapid of the day. It’s an inconsequential warm up consisting of a clean, gentle wave train running just off river left. A higher flows a small rapid will form off the left bank. There is a clean wavetrain to throw a few wheels, a clean eddyline to play towards the top of the rapid and a dicey splat opportunity off pinball rock at the bottom.
