Adventure Ideas – River Scuttle – Emerald Pools to Washington City, CA

These are plans for a very hardcore river scuttle. Do you know what a river scuttle is?

A river scuttle is a journey in which you carry nothing but a waterproof bag. That waterproof bag is carried either slung around your arm and shoulder or it floats alongside you while you swim. The idea is that you are 100% prepared to be aquatic, but carrying everything you need to survive in your waterproof bag.

This journey described in the above image is an eleven mile trip. That means those doing the journey are doing nothing but cliff jumping, swimming, rock climbing and hiking the entire distance along the river.

Waterproof bags will need to have space for sleeping bags and shelter. This will be a 2-3 day trip.

This is a big journey. I’ve never met anyone who has undertaken it.

There are a lot of safety values. It’s dangerous, but not perilous.

Let me know if you want to go in the comments. I’m thinking that we head out in late June.
