This summer I have been fortunate enough to be able to hit Fordyce Creek four times before they shut the water off at Fordyce dam. Fordyce is a Reno classic, only an hour and a half out of the city on Donor Pass with quality whitewater and beautiful scenery in another high sierra batholith setting. I first hit this creek as an Upper Cherry warm up a few weeks ago. The first run was amazingĀ  and I fired up every drop except Atomic Piton rapid which I walked and had the pleasure of watching Seth Stoenner style. This week I hit the creek three times logging one overnight trip with my Dad and two more with good Reno friends. I made this video to show the Fordyce experience.
