Tick List

1 trip Mindbender Canyon - Robbers Roost
Date: 10/16/2023
Ran with Caylin in over 6 hours. We rebuilt the deadman at the first rap. Significant water was present up to chest deep. New bolts were present at the last rap. The climb out was tough. We used a fixed rope left by a previous party. Solid climbing skills are necessary for at least one member and belaying following party members would be wise.
1 trip East / West Fork of Big Spring Canyon - High Spur
Date: 10/15/2023
Descended into the west fork. Just after the rap, we encountered a pot hole full of water and mud. Decided to ascend back out and come back with pothole gear.
1 trip Low Spur - High Spur
Date: 10/15/2023
Out and back with Caylin in 4 hours. Stopped just after the rap/ascent d/t a large water filled chamber. The rest of the water was avoidable with stemming. Very short fun section for the hours of slogging through the sand.
1 trip High Spur Canyon - High Spur
Date: 10/14/2023
Ran with Caylin in just under 5 hours. Waited for one large group at the rap for 30 min.
3 trip Chute Canyon - Southern Swell
Date: 03/08/2023
See notes on crack canyon (combined day).
3 trip Crack Canyon - San Rafael Swell
Date: 03/08/2023
Beautiful canyon for what it was. A couple of short up climbs that could be challenging for those who don’t climb. The most challenging part was finding the path between chute and crack canyon- good navigation skills necessary. We did chute first, then crack, but the beta recommends the opposite way. I’d recommend chute as an out and back to any ability. Epic views, easy walking. Just need high clearance to access.
1 trip3 trip Farnsworth Canyon - Eastern Reef
Date: 03/07/2023
We didn’t do the rappel due to the waning sunlight. But the hike through the canyon would be excellent for all abilities with epic views on cool days. Definitely worth going back to do the rappels.
1 trip3 trip Wild Horse Window & Canyon - Southern Swell
Date: 03/06/2023
Beautiful window simul rap. We did with a 70 m dynamic. Thought a 200 might just barely reach, but we weren’t sure. Definitely worth the walk in which was relatively mellow and quick. Appropriate for anyone with route finding ability.
