          The order of difficulty is an approximation. Please understand that at various flows runs can be more or less difficult. Many of the runs listed I have only run once or twice. Therefore, I of course cannot have a perfect frame of reference to compare all the runs. This however is meant only to be a general guide of runs to look at for a specific class of whitewater. You might also check what levels I have done each run at to see how well my ratings apply to the current flows.
          Also, you might notice that the order of difficulty isnt always in order with the difficulty which I rated the run. this is because I ranked compared to overall impressions. How tired was I after the run, how many rapids, were rapids portagable etc. So just because a run is listed below a class III run, it may still be class IV- or whatever.
