Chile Creeking - Upper Palguin

This was a great way to get introduced to creeking, what a beautiful setting with clean drops, clean water, and good company. If you ever want to kayak in Chile, check out and "Run the Shit" with Rodrigo. Rodrigo, Tom from Shred Ready, another cat from Colorado, and a dude from Cali, let me tag along with them on this gem just a few minutes outside of Pucon, Chile. After 3 weeks of paddling big water, I was ready to hit some waterfalls!

Not much warmup on this run - these three photos are a sequence of the first rapid right at the get-in.

No scouting possible here, just a blind corner with a waterfall.

A perfect shot of a perfect 20 footer.

Watch the elbows!

Thanks to Rodrigo for taking such sick photos!

November and December is the best time for creeking around Pucon, and I can't wait to go back and RUN THE SHIT!
