Rio Ancoa

Maxandmike-upper ancoa
Located in the Maule region. Rough road to the put-in where the entire river comes from a tunnel. Put-in 
Notice the water from the tunnel coming in from river right. Picture taken looking downstream.Put in beauty Great boogie class five rapids. One big river wide 6ft ledge hole about 1/3 of the way down. Scout and portage right. A weird sievey rapid after the second bridge, sneak left. Great read and run class 5  to a dam portage and easy rapids to the 3rd bridge. Bridge 2 to bridge 3 runs can be done in less than 30 minutes and you avoid the sketchy part of the shuttle road further up. The upper stretch above the 2nd bridge is very scenic big water feel class 4 rapids with the class 5 ledge. Upper section
