1 trip Shillelagh Canyon - North Wash
Date: 04/27/2024
LF 3:20 hrs DRY - Hernanns, Lottie, Tom and Laura. extra time to LF about 15-20 mins. R1 a bit awkward over lip, then open. we used courtesy and pulled from shelf below (above the pot hole/R2). Slide into pothole is fine, but first timers may be uncomfortable without a spot. R2 slabby, easy. Fun DC/handline (I DC'd with no problem). Lots of 5-10' DCs. opens, then tightens again. wider slots.

Date: 04/26/2024
RF 2:45hrs DRY - Hernanns, Lottie, Bela. liked the shorter approach, liked the raps. first was easy slab to a slight open to a shelf (no prob with courtesy for beginners). Nice shorter/tighter slots (compared to LF), Sorta CRP for R1 anchor, another CRP for R2. again easy with a courtesy, nice long chute to a dry pothole. beautiful tall canyons after R2, with some lovely textured tighter slots. opens up but tightens up again (like the RF does as well).
1 trip Blarney Canyon - North Wash
Date: 04/25/2024
Bela, Hernanns, Lottie, and Tom. DRY, 5 hrs. We did the loop going up the RF and down the LF. we weren't sure of the bypass (we exited early, looks like can take slot up a bit further) but found an established trail to top of rim to get to LF. Fun upclimbs in RF, some lovely textured slots, maybe 1 assisted upclimb (used a leg for the shorter folks). LF 1st rap a bit of open bottom half, skipped 2nd rap-went down the rabbit hole, pretty easy DC. some fun downclimbs - a few elevators. lovely slots. shorter than i remembered!
1 trip Death Canyon - North Wash
Date: 04/09/2023
ran with Lottes, Judy, and Martin for our last day and on way home. Fine short canyon, dead man was hard to check and a bit awkward since it was pretty slimy. downclimb is probably do able but we did hand line/mini rap. Def not a destination canyon, but good add on to a trip as it is short.
1 trip Shillelagh Canyon - North Wash
Date: 04/08/2023
Left/west fork with Lottes, Judy, Martin and myself. Great shorter canyon- more open with some shallow slots to enjoy. raps early with a few downclimbs/partner assists to keep it enjoyable.
1 trip3 trip Leprechaun Canyon - North Wash
Date: 04/07/2023
April, Ellie, Lottes and myself. really cool canyon, but pretty darn tight! we added on 2 additional rappels from description at the beginning (no walk around at the top of the canyon). got our rope stuck at another optional rappel - didn't realize we could have gone below the boulders and squeezed through! luckily Vinny (rando guy) chimneyed up and unstuck it for us!). not sure we'd repeat the left and likely won't ever try the middle. up to checking out the the right though!
1 trip Hogwarts Canyon - North Wash
Date: 04/06/2023
April, Ellie, Lottes and myself. first run of trip due to driving from UT/CO border in AM. nice afternoon. did R0. avoided water at R1. handline/optional rap set up for the slide after R2. another optional rap set up to avoid the semi-keeper pothole but we didn't use. stayed dry on pothole, but A&E got wet after squeeze and larger pool - L and i stemmed/bridged with some effort on my part. bolts at R4 were very nice!
1 trip Pine Creek - Zion Main Canyon
Date: 10/07/2022
Fun last canyon of our trip. Lucked out with a parking spot right at the top, only had to wait a few mins. Lots of water, not too manky due to recent rain/flash. I got a little cold with my 4/3 wetsuit but worth it. Cathedral and flute caverns were amazing! we did a meat anchor and partner assist for last drop out of the last one. Hike out was very meandering but not too bad. Done in 5 hrs with 6 ppl (Ed, Tom, April, Ellie, Chris, Myself)
1 trip Orderville Canyon - Zion East Side
Date: 10/06/2022
combo'd up with englestead
1 trip Englestead Canyon - Zion East Side
Date: 10/06/2022
2 anchors at R1 after some exploring, we used left most which we believed was the main anchor noted.. the other was closer to the watercourse. R1 was fun and long, didn't need to add much friction as started with 1 leg already on the crtr. Pretty wet pretty quickly and should have put on wetsuits much earlier (before orderville). a few extra raps off some logs. Exit down Orderville was stunning with the start of fall color, plenty of water. Narrows overrun with people. 9 hrs with a group of 5 (Ed, April, Ellie, Chris, myself) including a little wait for our shuttle folks at R1 (we started ahead of them so we could scout and set up rap to save time).
1 trip Keyhole Canyon - Zion Main Canyon
Date: 10/05/2022
Fun canyon, cool slots and lots of water. some were a bit cold with a 4/3 but i was good in my hydroskin and jacket for the short time in canyon. Lottes and i enjoyed the extra water at the end :) (Ed, Tom, April, Ellie, Chris, myself)
1 trip The Subway (From the Top) - Zion West Side
Date: 10/04/2022
Did own shuttle and started at sunrise. Lovely day, hike in was picturesque (mini wave!), passed a family with no wetsuits and possibly no gps (they ended up following us after asking for directions). Some downclimbs, swims, and wading. Just a few rappels and we used anchors on right for last rap into subway. (group camping near us had an accident at the base of this rap - took them 12 hrs to get out!). Hike out was same as i remembered. Just over 9 hours for the group of 7 of us. Ed, Patricia, Tom, April, Ellie, Chris, and myself.

1 trip MMI Canyon - Arches National Park
Date: 10/23/2021
Ran this with Tracy, Ed, Ed's niece Rachel & Oliver, April, Ellie, Elizabeth, Lottes, and Tom. fun run, description didn't match - took notes. fun day even with climber's exit. next time check out arch from above!

1 trip Bow and Arrow Canyon - Potash Road
Date: 04/28/2021
Bela and I only. 3 hrs car to car. rapped the DC/R0 - sketchy! otherwise nice open canyon!
1 trip Goblin's Lair - Goblin Valley
Date: 04/26/2021
H2, SW, TC, ER, EA, AH, EH had to do some backtracking but really that made it that much more fun! the Lair was super cool and we did a dual rope setup for the rap with our 150' ish ropes.
1 trip Blue John Canyon - Robbers Roost
Date: 04/25/2021
H2, SW, TC, ER, EA, AH, EH. We did Little Blue John and up the Main Fork. I would NOT reco this ever again for myself. Even bela said it was sketchy and stupid to do the upclimbs and i fully agree. Crazy hard. Instead do Little Blue John then explore up the main fork as far a ability allows, then return via the short Little Blue exit. OR consider going down blue john and out the LBJ exit.
1 trip Hogwarts Canyon - North Wash
Date: 10/18/2020
Ed, Tom, Lizzy, Alicia, and myself. AM run before heading home. Hike was pretty well worn in this time. We did the optional first rap instead of scramble. Beautiful again. Crazy hair at bottom of last rap.

1 trip No Mans Canyon - Robbers Roost
Date: 10/27/2018
Canyon was great, but we rushed through it. Horrible exit due to heat and crappy map reading by rest of the group. i got left behind and helped them route find once they got cliffed out. Only 2 of us had maps and we took long way out.
