The upper part of South Sauty is really not worth it. The first two miles are pretty doggone flat, with an occasional medium to small surfing wave at about 18" on the Bucks Pocket stick gage. When Kirby comes in just upstream of the normal run put-in rapid, a couple almost river wide low head dam type holes could ensnare the unwary. The usual put-in rapid is definitely the highlight. This could be a warmup for the lower run but Kirby is much more entertaining for that purpose.
