Tick List

1 trip Upper Greasewood - San Rafael Swell
Date: 09/27/2018
Lots of water and several swimmers! Was happy to have a wetsuit in 80s temps. Best to do this canyon early in the day when the sun is shining directly into the canyon.
1 trip Adobe Swale - Poison Spring
Date: 09/23/2018
Spicier than anticipated based on the description. All pools were mostly full of water, but it was warm out and a wetsuit was not necessary. The pull on the second rap was awful. Had to cut our rope after a couple hours of pulling in it.
5 trip Green River Daily - Green River
Date: 05/26/2018
Fun!!
3 trip South Cainville Mesa - Cainville
Date: 03/10/2018
Stunning scenery & perfect weather in March
1 trip Hogwarts Canyon - North Wash
Date: 04/18/2017
Sweet and short canyon! Accidentally brought a 30m rope instead of a 60m (I know, I know). We got through the 1st 2 raps fine, went off the side on the 3rd and downclimbed the rest. 4th rap one of us went off single strand and noticed we could stop off at a ledge. Pulling the rope was an ordeal. Went to the car and got another rope to tie to one end to help with the pull angle. We made it out fine, luckily. Read the directions carefully, kids!
1 trip Fry Canyon - Cedar Mesa
Date: 04/18/2017
Nice shorter outing. The slot section at the end is great, everything up until then is alright. The ruins are def worth checking out!
1 trip East and West Cheesebox Canyon - Cedar Mesa
Date: 04/17/2017
A+ Canyon. Did this in 75 degree weather with wetsuits (essential for me since I get cold easily).
1 trip Gravel Canyon - Cedar Mesa
Date: 04/16/2017
Fun canyon AND you get some ruins at the end. Highly recommend this and Cheesebox while you're in the area.
1 trip Tidwell Canyon - High Spur
Date: 04/02/2017
Awesome canyon. We got waist deep in water shortly after the last rappel.
1 trip Shenanigans - Middle West Butler
Date: 03/21/2017
Prettier and easier than I was expecting! I'm 5'3" 130lbs and had no problem getting thru the tight sections. No water in the first section for us, but I slipped in the last pool and was nice and soggy on the hike out.
1 trip Two Step Canyon - Dirty Devil
Date: 03/20/2017
As of 3/20/17, the second upclimb is blocked by rockfall. Still a pleasant canyon up until that point. We combined this and Happy Canyon in a packrafting trip down the Dirty Devil.
3 trip Happy Canyon (via Poison Spring) - Dirty Devil
Date: 03/19/2017
What a pleasant canyon! We combined this canyon with a packrafting trip down the Dirty Devil.
3 trip Lower Muley Twist Canyon - Notom Road
Date: 03/13/2017
Did this as a backpack. Water wasn't an issue, except for that many pools would freeze in the evening. Beautiful easy hike! Love me them alcoves.
1 trip High Spur Canyon - High Spur
Date: 03/09/2017
Such a charmer! The middle pothole was indeed cold! Took me a minute to escape that one. The slots after the potholes were the best. Final rap out was classy af.
1 trip High Spur Canyon - High Spur
Date: 03/09/2017
1 trip Dave's Not Dead Canyon (Purgatory) - Bullfrog
Date: 03/08/2017
Fun canyon with lots of variety. Didn't need to ferry rocks. Currently, the last rap can be split up into 2 raps.
1 trip Sawtooth Canyon - Dirty Devil
Date: 03/05/2017
I had low expectations for this canyon based on the description, but was pleasantly surprised. It's short, but the hike in was really nice and the slot was a little spicier than expected. Downclimbs were fine, but there is deep pothole that is tricky to get out of alone. All in all, a nice evening slot to finish out the day.
1 trip Angel Cove Slot - Angel Point
Date: 03/05/2017
Fun slot and unclimbs!
1 trip Hog Canyons - North Wash
Date: 02/21/2017
Hog 1 & 2. The first rappel on Hog 2 didn't seem as long as described. Really great exit through the "birth canal"! Hog 1 had us using a hand line a few times. It was tighter than I was expecting, but really fun!
1 trip Horse Play Canyon - North Wash
Date: 02/20/2017
Nice warm up to Upper Stair.
1 trip Upper Stair Canyon - North Wash
Date: 02/20/2017
Fun canyon with lots of chimneying. Sacrum took a beating on this one. Added on the R section at the end and exited out the first slot on the right. Do-able, but prob should have taken the exit after it.
3 trip Notch Peak - Delta
Date: 11/13/2016
Easy hike with awesome pay off. Watched the sunset on the peak and then hiked over to Sawtooth for another view.
1 trip Little Bull Canyon - White Roost
Date: 10/31/2016
1st rappel was off a chockstone, which was pretty cool. The 2 stage rap was AWESOME. Deep and dark. Did this after Chambers.
1 trip South Fork of Bull Canyon (aka Chambers) - White Roost
Date: 10/31/2016
Love this canyon. It's tight and requires some grunt work, but the chamber section is stunning and the exit is pretty awesome.
1 trip Blue John Canyon - Robbers Roost
Date: 10/30/2016
West Fork & Little Blue, nice canyons to do in colder weather.
3 trip Brimhall Arch - Waterpocket Fold
Date: 10/16/2016
Visited this arch as a side trip to Hall's Creek Narrows. Awesome!! Yes, there was definitely swimming required.
