Lower Tye


A typical drop on the Lower Tye.

David, Joe, Steve and I followed our lower Foss warmup with a run down a mile of wonderful IV+ water on the Lower Tye. This run consists of several complex boulder gardens. Photos are posted in the gallery. I mostly shot video, though, so there's not too much there.

From the putin, the run starts with a bang. The first drop is a fun boulder garden with a great initial drop.
