This compilation of class V rafting techniques is recommended for guides of every skill level. The value of these methods to guides soon to raft class V rivers is clear, but equally important is the usefulness of techniques to guides on class III and IV rivers. Newer guides—all guides—should make the methods presented in this little volume second nature through long practice on easier rivers. This will make all of our trips safer—and will allow you and your crews to progress more smoothly, with relative ease, to more difficult runs.
