Tick List

1 trip Upper Greasewood - San Rafael Swell
Date: 05/31/2021
Parked at new trailhead - sign clearly states no vehicles so we obliged. Just Jacq and I. Just under 6 hours car to car from the new trailhead (which adds 1 mile each way to the beta). 4-5 pools with water, several mandatory swims. The water level is low compared to other reports from prior years. Got our rope stuck on one of the rappels so had to ascend and reposition it for the pull. Otherwise no issues. Hike out sucks. Uphill rocky section for about 30 minutes, then an hour or so of desert hiking.
1 trip The Wives - Capitol Reef
Date: 05/30/2021
Wife 5 with Jacq - 2 hours 20 minutes car to car (moving quickly).
1 trip Micro Death Hollow - Escalante
Date: 05/27/2021
Jacq and I did this late afternoon after work. Completely Dry. Rappelled the first option as described in this beta. Rappel drops you into a keeper pothole. The two of us took about 25 minutes to get out of the pothole - used 2 pot shots and a bag tossed on top of the pot shots to hold them down. Jacq had to stand on my shoulders with boosts from my hands to get out. Second pothole was easy to escape, solo if needed but we used a partner boost. Chose the standard exit as we were running out of daylight, would love to go back and do the other exit.
1 trip Upper Black Box - San Rafael Swell
Date: 08/10/2020
Jacq, Elena, Caroline - Very low water when we did this, so only a couple spots where we had to swim. Very enjoyable, easy Canyon. Had a little trouble finding the rappel but once we did it was straightforward.
1 trip Goblin's Lair - Goblin Valley
Date: 05/28/2020
