After the put-in is a quick warm up rapid before Coin Slot (V+) which is normally portaged on either side.  Some class IV rapids lead to Adrenaline, the second class V+.  Portage on the left.  After Adrenaline, a fun slot drop is followed by some play spots.  The last mile is flat.  The take-out for Day Stretch is the put-in for the Honeymooner.
