Class V Rivers
Class V rivers are for seasoned, daring whitewater enthusiasts, and other healthy, active, rugged folks with strong swimming skills. Trips on the following Rogue Klamath River Adventures rivers require all paddlers to participate in the Class V Warm Up immediately prior to starting their trip:
Rafting Class V rapids and waterfalls requires wholehearted participation and team work by paddlers who are in good physical condition. Previous rafting experience is strongly recommended, but not always required. In addition to the risks inherently presented by Class V whitewater, these rivers also generally require a fairly short, yet challenging put-in &/or take-out. These involve hiking, scrambling over slick rocks, and carrying gear.
The Warm Up & Swim Test
Before each trip, everyone participates in a Class V Warm-Up which includes:
Class V rafting is strenuous and adventurous, so be sensible. Use this Class V Warm-Up to determine your own readiness to paddle Class V. If you cannot participate in this warm-up, but want to paddle, please select one of our many less difficult trips. We reserve the right to turn away those who we feel are not well suited to these high adventure class V trips. In such cases, we will substitute a less rigorous river or section of river where possible.
At the river expect to participate in this warm-up. Also, understand that at the trip leader's discretion, we may shorten or modify calisthenics in order to concentrate on: swimming in and out of swift currents, catching eddies, swimming through holes, flipped raft drills, which include swimming underwater from one side of the raft to the other, high-siding and toss bag practice.
Participating in the class V warm-up in no way certifies your ability to successfully tackle class V or guarantees your safety on class V, it simply gives you and us a somewhat better sense of your readiness for a class V trip.
Class V paddle expeditions are not recommended for anyone with a medical condition which might in any way affect his or her ability to give 100% throughout the expedition.
