White Water Bouldering
Just west of Evolution Valley on the JMT is Goddard Creek. My friends and I discovered this awsome slot in the creek 15+ feet deep with featured overhanging walls. A class 3 rapid pours into the slot creating a deep fast moving pool of white water. We first tested out the pool by cautiously jumping, then diving deeper and deeper. None of us touched the bottom. Traversing barefoot down on both sides of the slot, we found numerous problems with large juggs and steep moves, most of which were dry. And when you slip, icecold water and a quick swim into an eddy. Here is a picture my friend Peter took of me on one of the most amusing problems (maybe V3).
