 Forgot to add...there are two arms coming out of Manitounamaing Lake...take the upper arm, it has a short set of rapids that are runnable.  The lower arm is a very long rapid, no port, sketchy looking.  This is probably where the 715 m port used to be, but it is no longer there.  The rest of the info is quite accurate.

 Last two days of this report cover this route.  Great whitewater trip, seldom done.
