The Barracks boulder obstacle in 2003. Several boulders have choked up the river forcing a (fairly easy) little scramble down the boulder into waist-deep water.

The boulder obstacle in 2009 with much more flood debris directing all of the water to one side; the pool is now a swimmer. Since 2011, water is now flowing over the boulder and the waterfall has become extremely dangerous. Look for the bypass on the south side to avoid going through the waterfall. This obstacle will continue to change configuration in the future! BUY PHOTO
