Tick List

1 trip Cassidy Arch Canyon - Capitol Reef
Date: 06/11/2024
Too hot with Chris and Mel. Worst part was there was NO PIE! Got to swim in the Fremont river though.
1 trip Zero G Canyon - San Rafael Swell
Date: 05/12/2024
Good fun once more. Went the low way in the pot holes. Phil and May FORGOt to tell me we were doing wetsuites . How disrespectful. The potholes are so beautiful and charactered but the water was extra cold for me.
1 trip Slideanide Canyon - Poison Spring
Date: 05/12/2024
Phil has inspired me to write a bit more in my ticks. Second day of my trip with May and Phil. Mat stayed back but I am sure he could do it. We opted for no rope and with a bit of route finding managed to find out way down. The first 3 down-climbs are short but maybe the most difficult/awkward. The last 2 look intimidating but we’re awesome. Especially the last multistage stem adventure. Would repeat just to do that section again. The walk out was short but a slog because of all the hiking we did the day before. Phil is a good down climber. Guy we met at zero g said this can be upclimbed which sounds fun.
3 trip Happy Canyon (via Poison Spring) - Dirty Devil
Date: 05/11/2024
Nice and sunny walk down to happy canyon with Phil and mat. As is typical we lemented our jobs and wish we could pursue creative endeavors. We go back to work on Monday. Also I won in light up bachi ball. With an amazing toss through the hole in the rock.
1 trip South Fork of Bull Canyon (aka Chambers) - White Roost
Date: 04/21/2024
Good fun with everyone in tow to celebrate getting married in June. Very cool, very tight, I think I stemmed around the most tight portions so I did not get full value. That being said, still had to breath through a few sections. Sean did it in shorts and destroyed his knees and it was Trinas very first canyon and did it no problem. David will get it next time for sure. Excited for more in the future. Glad Michael, sean, and phil stayed.
1 trip Cistern and Ramp Canyons - San Rafael Swell
Date: 04/12/2024
Put a fixed rope on ramp since I was doing this solo. I considered just doing the rap but fortunately I took the advice and scoped the end of ramp. I think it is kind of like west slab. With friends the climb out would have been a bit sketchy but fun. Solo it felt very spooky. Especially because the webbing left behind was ancient and I wish I had my knife to remove it. As I decended I forgot there would be a 3rd class walk around and I got tight butt hole when I thought I might have to accent or go get my rope. Then I found the walk around. Easy but very chossy. Solo scary. Friends = fun. Then the walk between canyons requires very legitimate route finding. I am pretty good with a topo and I would have been freaking out if I did not have my gps. Won’t be doing this one again. Onward to buckhorn to climb with Eric and company.
1 trip Cassidy Arch Canyon - Capitol Reef
Date: 12/02/2023
Down Cassidy again so soon. It was Liam’s 30th and we took Alex, Tim, ray and Brandt. Met garret and someone else who were very nice. Cold but fun for ray and brandts first time. Learned a thing or two about rope pulls, friction, and helmets.Alex went up then back down the bridge because of fomo. Rad time in the A frame.
1 trip Zero G Canyon - San Rafael Swell
Date: 11/06/2023
Last bit before heading home from the Liam and jack Monkey Biz trip. Did it in 1:14. Each time you stem the slots it seems higher and more punishing... you are just getting older. Phil in his underwear and was evil to lead Taylor through the canyon 8 years ago.
1 trip Monkey Business - West - West Butler
Date: 11/05/2023
Dooooooooope canyon for the trip. Jack ripped his pants open and the first rap with the natural anchor down low was cool. IT bands are screaming. Denver Davis and Catherine (?) have a long drive to go.
1 trip3 trip Lucky Charms - North Wash
Date: 11/04/2023
End of day quick hike. Phil Liam and jack climbed the extra curricular chimney. Jack was extremely comfortable on it. Enough that I was scared. Sandals were a bad choice .
1 trip Arscenic Canyon - Poison Spring
Date: 11/04/2023
Liam Phil and jack. Good time . Quick and simple. My knee hurts. Meat at the car and 1 cold beer is essential. Pearl and Lil Jack need to hook up.
1 trip Blarney Canyon - North Wash
Date: 05/28/2023
Jack is a scared man but did great. Travis put his shirt in that car.
1 trip Hogwarts Canyon - North Wash
Date: 05/27/2023
First time with jack. He did great!
1 trip Hog Canyons - North Wash
Date: 11/12/2022
Did hog 1 with Eric juhl Nahuel and Val. Way cooler than I thought and tight.
1 trip Angel Slot - Angel Point
Date: 11/11/2022
Excellent. Way more action than I expected and quite dark.
1 trip Death Canyon - North Wash
Date: 11/11/2022
First canyon for Nahuel and Val. Eric joined us too. Cool new canyon crew. Try to go under the initial log. More fun than you think.
1 trip Zero G Canyon - San Rafael Swell
Date: 10/22/2022
Liam’s first time. Set a land speed record. GVKE year 13
1 trip The Black Hole of White Canyon - Hite
Date: 05/29/2022
WARNING: Initial pool is filled with pee that emptied from Mats flubby and chubby wetsuit ankles. Extreme fun is to be had throughout the canyon and no pack toss was needed due to easy jump or climb to advance past the obstacle. Liams first canyon and I think it did not disappoint especially after him and Mat went through the special hole slide drop at the first pool. Beware sounds of Lankum as to descend into the horrors that await or simply stay on the surface and take a swim at lake Powel.
1 trip3 trip Leprechaun Canyon - North Wash
Date: 04/02/2022
A pleasant end to a long journey in Coli. Canyon can be descended with webbing and no harness. Unmentioned climb at the very end was the clear crux. Will Smith would have not slapped this canyon. Great activity to do if you need a distraction from Hacky Sack.
1 trip3 trip Leprechaun Canyon - North Wash
Date: 04/02/2022
Did middle fork after the long Coli Odyssey. Grand time. Hardest part was the small climb at the very very end of it.
1 trip4 trip Upper Black Dragon Wash - Central Swell
Date: 08/03/2021
Did this with almost no water in the pools. Made for an OK time. I would like to head back and try this again with water in it. Still fun to do with Steve after we floated the green. Finding the last rap was the most fun part.
1 trip Egypt 2 Canyon - Escalante
Date: 09/26/2020
The Egypt 2 bench at the wet river was the highlight. Good warm up to ascending egypt 3
1 trip Headless Hen and Raven Canyons - King Mesa
Date: 05/18/2020
Did Raven. Owl friend found in pot hole and was harder and headier than I had expected. The potholes were hardest for me.
1 trip Egypt 3 Canyon - Escalante
Date: 05/17/2020
You can also fit through at 191lbs
1 trip Bingo Canyon - Dirty Devil
Date: 10/12/2019
Awesome downclimbs and replaced deadman on last rappel. Turns our Nalgene bottles are not indestructible.
1 trip Sawtooth Canyon - Dirty Devil
Date: 10/10/2019
More fun than beta suggests. Fun downclimbs and stemming. Ryan eats weird icecream. Parkour spiral staircase is the best move.
1 trip Benign Canyon - Dirty Devil
Date: 10/10/2019
Great canyon. Ryan, please remove the rattle snake in the 5th pothole. K Thx.
1 trip Fire Canyon - Capitol Reef
Date: 10/04/2019
First rap is awesome. Canyon Colby made an appearance and was nearly lost in his own madness when attempting to comprehend the mind of "whacky canyoneers".
1 trip Goblin's Lair - Goblin Valley
Date: 06/06/2019
Enjoyable canyon for Dylan's first time visiting. Mini me and dr evil dropping in.
1 trip Shenanigans - Middle West Butler
Date: 05/27/2019
Is this the Grim crawl? Take only people who are good. It's amazing but could be more narrow. Forget hydro phobia
1 trip Upper Stair Canyon - North Wash
Date: 05/27/2019
Stem city. R rates bonus cool too but had to save Matt and Phil. Always bring two things of webbing. Go back and do the waterfall rappel that is not in the beta.
