Tick List

1 trip Birch Hollow - Zion East Side
Date: 08/07/2018
Lance and I - 5.5 hours. Next time need to bring a dirt bike and truck for shuttle and leave truck at orderville trail head. need to get there early and plan extra time to shuttle prior. we parked shuttle not far enough and spent about 3.5 hours hiking out. a lot of sun exposure and hiking up a dirt road. it's about 45 minutes to first rappel and an hour in the canyon. mostly a dry canyon but had one or two muddy spots
1 trip3 trip Water Canyon - Hildale
Date: 07/28/2018
Shawn Matt 6 hours and 45 minutes
1 trip3 trip Benson Creek - Brian Head
Date: 06/30/2018
Shawn, Lance, and I - 3.5 hours. would be much shorter but took a while deciding where to scramble up at couple steep places in the approach. It was good that we started early (8:30) so we were in the shade during the approach.
1 trip Pine Creek - Zion Main Canyon
Date: 06/13/2018
Lance, Matt, Kirra, Me - 4.5 hours. Started just before 1pm. Everyone said we needed wetsuits. Glad to have them in some spots but probably could have got away without it. The hike out was a beast.
1 trip Yankee Doodle Canyon - Leeds
Date: 05/16/2018
Matt, Kirra, Angela. Car to car - 3ish hours. Waist to chest high water in multiple places
1 trip Birch Hollow - Zion East Side
Date: 08/03/0019
Lance, Jen, Lance's Dad Tyler, Paul, Shara, Shara's son Alex. Took almost 8 hours! didn't leave the trailhead until 10:15 and got back to the car at 6. didn't listen to the advice I gave myself from last trip. we left the house at 7:10amit took us an hour to get to the West Zion entrance and another almost hour to get through Zion to the trailhead.then we needed to drop off the vehicles for the shuttle. both vehicles need to be high clearance vehicles, the last 2.5 miles to the orderville turn around parking area (road past the gate) is kind of rough and unable to drive in a car. if we shuttle correctly it will cut off 2.5 miles of hiking uphill on a dirt road and will make it much more enjoyable haha. we also we're pretty slow at every rappel with a couple newbies. we would benefit from at least two 120 foot ropes to set one rappel as the rest are coming down the previous rappel as each rappel is in pretty quick succession. the description says 8 rappels but I think we did 10 or 11.
