Fremont Canyon spring stout


Fremont Spring Stout from Mike Perry on Vimeo.


It was the end of March and i just scored my first strokes on quake. I still needed more so I decided to head down to my early season mecca, Casper Wyo! Joined with two of my good buddies, Luke Sutton and Austin Woody we rallied one of the best early season runs in my own opinion, in regards to amount of time and money available...Fremont Canyon is a tight little gorge 45 mins south of Casper. The difficulty of the run is dramtically affected by the presence of sieves which come into play at different levels. Because of this, the last drop ,guarding the exit of the gorge, becomes mandatory at certain levels as well as unscoutable from with in the gorge, this gorge lies above the steel bridge. At 1800, the flow in this edit, the two drops above geranimo are easy class IV with low consequence, the top gorge with the john fremont feature have a similartiy to that of Cross Mountain Gorge with a easy III+ rating allow any one to soak in the scenery after a great blast of water at the start of the canyon.. Cheers to a great season ahead! Stay Safe
