I've been on 2", and even clear hard 2" on a cold day is unsettling. 3" doesn't scare me though.

Done 2.5" on Chatfield scary as hell. Done 2.75" on Atown just fine.3" on 11-mile hard as a rock.

First post here, but yesterday, Tightline Outdoors reported 10 inches at Boyd. You'd think that Barr would be similar?
