1 trip Heaps Canyon - Zion Main Canyon
Date: 08/07/2021
Started at 4:00am from the Grotto, hiked to Cabin Springs and filtered water, dropped into the first narrow at around 10:00am, got back to the car at 8:30pm. It took us way longer than we wanted it to/thought it would. We were first people down after significant rain and flash flooding in the area. Lots of debris left over and plenty of water to swim through. We broke a couple of "dams" and turned a few of the raps into a class C canyon. We went way to slow on the last rap sequence and when doing it again will leave a station chief at each rap to help speed things up. The scale of the canyon is awe inspiring, and the scenery/landscape is almost spiritual in it's beauty. Must do again! Team consisted of Matt W, Jared W, Jared S, Jeff B, Bryce B, and myself.
1 trip Imlay Canyon (Sneak Route) - Zion Main Canyon
Date: 06/18/2021
Parked at the Grotto, started at around 5:30am, got to the shuttle bus after the Narrows at 5:45pm. The canyon was extremely dry (drought year) and we only ran into three potholes that required any real work to escape from. One partner assist the other two we pot shot and climbed out. The canyon was less challenging than we were expecting but still challenging. It was a lot of fun and quite beautiful. Would do again for sure. Team consisted of Matt W, Jared S, Jeff B, Bryce B, and myself.
1 trip The Squeeze - San Rafael Swell
Date: 08/24/2019
Went with Matt, Landon, Bryce. It took us about 10 hours. The water was low and we tested Matt's Potsticker prototype. Landon bent it. All the keepers were escapable with a pot shot toss.
1 trip Quandary Canyon - San Rafael Swell
Date: 06/14/2019
Went with Matt and Bryce. It was Bryce's first canyon. We expected to have some difficulty with the keeper potholes but were able to partner assist or pack toss everything pretty easily. It had rained pretty recently so maybe the holes were just full.
2 trip Leprechaun Canyon - North Wash
Date: 03/16/2019
Did the right fork with Matt, Jordan, and Landon. It had rained heavily the prior few days and we all ended up getting wet up to our waists.
1 trip Blarney Canyon - North Wash
Date: 03/16/2019
With Matt, Jordan, and Landon. Did the right fork of Lep earlier in the day and wanted to hit one more canyon before coming home. Did the left fork.
1 trip Hogwarts Canyon - North Wash
Date: 03/15/2019
Went with Matt, Jordan, and Landon. It had been raining the previous week and there was some standing water that we were able to avoid.
1 trip Blarney Canyon - North Wash
Date: 06/04/2016
Went with Matt Killian, a friend of his and Landon and Janelle. Did the left fork. Matt and his friend were new to canyoneering so we went slow but it was a good time.
1 trip Morocco Canyon - North Wash
Date: 06/04/2016
Went with Matt Killian, a friend of his and Landon and Janelle. It was extremely hot and there were sections that felt like we were in an oven. Fun canyon though.
2 trip Leprechaun Canyon - North Wash
Date: 03/19/2016
Went with Brian and Landon. Highlights included Brian sitting on Landon's head, Landon and I craddeling Brian down a steep slope, and Brian's usual sour attitude making the whole affair hilarious. It was a great time.
1 trip Hogwarts Canyon - North Wash
Date: 03/19/2016
Went with Brian Merrell and Landon. It was Brian's first canyon. He wasn't a huge fan of rapping off a mini arch in a big boulder but he did it.
