We’ll get your adrenaline flowing with a rappel into the Granite Gorge, where you’ll meet your raft for The Gauntlet – rafting Pine Creek & The Numbers. You’ll launch into the most advanced rafting offered on the Arkansas River in Colorado. The Gauntlet is full of Class III-V rapids and is the steepest and most continuous whitewater on the Arkansas River.
AVA runs more guests down these sections of the Arkansas River than any other company in Colorado, so you’re in good hands with highly experienced and safe river guides.
Not to worry, your climbing and rafting gear is all covered by AVA Rafting & Zipline – that includes wetsuits and splash jackets at no extra cost to you! We want to try to best prepare you for your trip with us, so take a look at the gear and suggested item lists that we’ve provided to know exactly what to pack for the Rappel into the Gauntlet.
