Last Candition: May 4, 2013
Replaced webbing on two rappel stations. A little avoidable water at bottom of one rappel. Lots of goat droppings.
Another bolt has been placed on first rap with chains so it has 2 there now. Still not sure why even the first one was done. Webbing at 2 & 4 will need to be replaced before too long. New webbing was placed on last rap. Use fiddlestick or throw pull cord RDC on last rap and pull from lower ledge to help with the grooves getting any worse
Everything good. Some snow & ice at the top. The one slot is full of waist deep water, either awkward stem it or stay high LDC to avoid
Canyon was only holding a small amount of water that could be avoided if you wanted. I just walk through it because it isn't worth the effort to stay dry. All anchors good, however there is now a bolt place LDC on the first rap. There was a guide service there using it when we caught up to them. Not quite sure why this was needed. there is a large tree for the first rap and the bolt is in a terrible spot. One of their clients even got injured on the rap and they had to take her back to the car
We had a nice cool breeze, and no water in the canyon. Easily stayed dry on the hike out.
Anchors all ok.
Water avoidable by stemming, although we just forged through calf deep.
No need to wade at all on the exit.
No bugs in the canyon, a few at the trailhead.
Mostly dry, any water could be avoided by climbing around or stemming. Bugs were barely noticeable.
Conditions were good. Small puddles present. Deep pool at the bottom of the second to last rappel (with all the chokestones), but avoidable with some rope work. Anchors are in good shape. Might consider replacing or adding a second webbing at aforementioned rappel. Muddy hike out. The more I do this canyon, the funner it is.
Dry conditions in the canyon. Bolts and webbing are in good shape. Added a larger more beefy rapide to the final rappel. Water canyon was running pretty good.
Dry with a few potholes which are easy to avoid (and no more than thigh deep). All webbing in good shape. Water flowing well in the exit canyon, ankle deep at worst. Road accessible by all vehicles.
