No4 Rapid - Umkomaas

No.4 is a steep, fast rock garden type rapid leading into a dog's leg to the right. Look for the cleanest water centre-right and stay sharp. The water flowing to the right as you re-enter the main channel flows over a couple of ledges which can form big holes at high levels, so try to skirt right of them.

The image below shows the valley features to look out for to indicate that you are about to enter No.4.
