On the 2010 Cali Tour we didnt manage to get on the Clavey but fortunately for us this year there is a heap of snow and that it didnt warm up until we arrived on June 17th. After trying to sort logistics, we enlisted the local expertise of Allen Speiring who pimped the shuttle and managed to get both our cars from the top and dropped to the dodgy take out the day we were getting off. The Clavey was kind of high, I am not going to say really high but it was well above Allen had ever done it, and although one of our team took off at the brigde I thought it was perfect!

Snarls on the final ledge (p. Jordy)

This is a sick overnighter with heaps of rapids in the class IV-V realm. With water is is no joke but also 100% manageable. Stoked we got it!
