Rizzanese – middle section
The landscape around the Rizzanese was gorgeous. However, it is being dammed, so it will not be around for so long. Thats a shame.
Water level: 100cm at bridge by Zoza
Grade: First section 7km: IV-IV+ (V) and second section 7km: II – III
Put in: At bridge by zoza
Take out: The next road bridge, after
Possible take out after first section: by walk-bridge at right (?)
A very nice river, with an intense drop & pool section in first section. It has some interesting drops, including a 10m fall. It then flattens out at second section, a perfect place to chat about drops in first section.
First starts pretty easy with rapids and some small drops, it then steadily gets tougher with a 6m drop, until a 2m drop introduces the 10m. Possible portage on left. Don’t trust the ropes blindly; one of them was broken when we were there (5th April, 09).
After this there was easy rapids, but two very sticky stoppers at end of drops. The first one is doable if you bouffe it right. The second one was after a long, III rapid. It had a 6m tow back, which made one of our kayaks to be stuck for 20 min; kayaker got luckily out after 3min; padding is still surfing. You recognize this drop as it has a bridge just after it. This is also the possible take-out.
If you continue there is coming more water in, nothing interesting compared to what you have just paddled, including some dead water sections.
