Tandem you can point one end in and the bow paddler get out. Then the stern can walk over the packs..(usually carefully and perhaps on the gunwales on all fours) and also get out on the bow. Slide the boat loaded over and get in downstream. Its often easier to get in tandem with the boat parallel to the now upriver dam.

Some of us have to do that on everyday paddles. Some rivers sport about a dozen dams in a few miles.
