Today after some typical chilean planning and couple text messages I met Steve Fisher, Mariann Saether and Vallentin Grollemund in front of the Kayak Chile shop again. The weather was great and we left to paddle the upper Palguin. Steve and Val went to check the upper drop but the lead in is quite ugly, there is not a clean line into the lip and yep... it's pretty tall to be upside down there.

Upper Palguin was again a great fun run. We were done in like 20 minutes and after short ride turned up to the Middle Palguin waterfall.

This fall is around 7o ft (21 metres) tall. The whole adventure starts with a tricky seal launch straight into the boly water above the fall itself. The boils are pretty tricky at this water level. From there on, the way is just down.
