Tick List

1 trip Lockjaw Canyon - Moab
Date: 04/27/2024
7 miles of walking sets this canyon up to be the worst in living memory. All of the walking is on AWD roads which means you have to wave back to every Moab Mike that happens to drive by. The rappels are meandering and uninspired. The forest you have to walk through in the riverbed would give Tarzan pause. Much like lockjaw, this is an experience best avoided. 5 hours The views of the mountains on the hike-in were quite beautiful.
1 trip U-Turn Canyon - Arches National Park
Date: 04/27/2024
All of the rappels are sketchy down-climbs, so they are not fun rappels, nor are they comfortable enough to down-climb. The highlight was the walkout. Wouldn’t recommend again. 2 hours
1 trip Tierdrop Canyon - Arches National Park
Date: 04/27/2024
Let’s just say, I won’t be dropping any tiers for this one. Solid canyon with bolted anchors or chains on every rappel. All the rappels are too long for the 120’ on it’s own. The first two rappels are over slick rock(not very fun). The last rappel was a 120’ drop of pure, unadulterated bliss 🤌 2.5 hours
1 trip Winter Camp Wash - Lost Spring
Date: 03/17/2024
One long rappel. We went back for the rope. Rappel was cool. Easy hike. Next to repeater.
1 trip Lost and Found Canyon - Arches National Park
Date: 03/17/2024
Beautiful views! Tough climb out. Very long hike for a very short canyon.
1 trip Repeater Jr Canyon - Lost Spring
Date: 03/17/2024
It was alright. Lisa freaked out in the rappel as I stood helplessly hundreds of feet above.
1 trip Pool Arch Canyon - Moab
Date: 10/01/2022
There were 3 gullies. The last gully is the one references in the road trip Ryan notes with the hike to the dome afterward. Several deep pools and 1 swimmer after a rain. Rappels 1(pool arch) and 3(beautiful views)were amazing. 2nd not so much. 3rd rappel is all of 200 ft. Fairly easy hike out on a 4x4 road. Lisa did a fantastic pencil jump into a pool. Last rappel was a rope stretcher. Dillon had to use a branch to hook the end. He also adequately inspired Steve and Danielle to go for the big rappel. Shocking, I know. Amateur Ashley got her shirt stuck. We took delightful reverse prom pics at the top of the dome. Great day. Rave reviews given to the guides. We go glen coco.
