Rio Negro

The rio negro is a very unknown river in southern Chile. Only a few groups have had the pleasure of getting on this one. It is a great little creek with tons of sweet boofs, good waterfalls, a stout 60 footer, and a couple sweet mini-gorges. We were grateful to be able to get on this one. It lies as most chilean creeks do, just below huge volcanoes, and is carved into the basalt rock that gives it its amazing drops. Another amazing chilean creek.
