Actually, Will, you're the only person I've ever heard call it 'pipeline.' Every outfitter/guide/private I know called it Cramer previously.
Well, before it blew out it was known as "pipeline" because of the pipe that was coming out from under the road at that point. It won't be changed to "derigger," either. The FS isn't making a new map any time soon so don't worry, there won't be any "silly rapid names." Happy boating folks... By the way, there are more pictures of Cramer at OregonRafting.org...
I agree completely with leaving it called "Cramer Creek". SO far the Middle Fork has been spared the indignity of silly rapid names. An outfitter I have association with has taken to calling Cramer Creek "Captain Crunch". I certainly hope THAT doesn't end up catching on!
It's at Cramer Creek. It's always been called Cramer Creek. Why change now?
The first five photo's posted here are of the new Cramer rapid, about one mile before the Cache Bar takeout on the Main Salmon. I've been told that the forest service is calling this new rapid "derigger" it is appropriate..
Scout this rapid! Has flipped numerous rafts and injured several people in the one season it has existed (2004).
