Tick List

1 trip Horse Play Canyon - North Wash
Date: 11/15/2020
a few ankle-deep watery spots - all can be avoided with stemming.
1 trip Shenanigans - Middle West Butler
Date: 11/14/2020
guided Brad and Kirstie on first trip - super fun, physically demanding canyon! Meat anchored for 3 raps above grim crawl. I crawled - no problem downclimbing. All other anchor webbing in good shape. Last rap into shoulder-deep water, only the first down had to take the plunge, everyone else hugged the right wall (downcanyon) to stay dry above the knees. super fun, memorable canyon.
3 trip Sulphur Creek - Capitol Reef
Date: 10/11/2020
neck deep wade in one part, otherwise avoidable water for the most part. wore water shoes and made for an easy and ejoyable day! No one else out there.
1 trip Cassidy Arch Canyon - Capitol Reef
Date: 10/10/2020
Birthday Trip with Meg & Gretch - their first real canyon :)
1 trip Wonderland Canyon - Capitol Reef
Date: 09/30/2020
dead snake in the first downclimb pothole, otherwise dry and anchors in good shape
1 trip Golf Canyon - Virgin River Gorge
Date: 06/07/2020
River crossing at 85 CFS, below-knee and very pleasant temps. All cairn anchors present and in good shape. lovely to cool off in the river after the hike.
1 trip Boy Scout Canyon - Black Canyon

hot and windy! shared the river beach with kayakers, but had the hike to ourselves. would love to go back on kayak route
1 trip Ghost Rider Canyon - Virgin River Gorge
Date: 11/26/2019
Went with Meg after Havasu, quick, easy, worth stopping for but definitely not worth a special trip.

Date: 10/10/2019
:)
3 trip Zebra and Tunnel Slot - Escalante
Date: 10/10/2019
:)
1 trip Jolley Gulch - Zion East Side
Date: 09/08/2019
Quick, pretty easy hitter. cool view on approach. Probably not worth doing again, but fun to tie in with another shorty (Keyhole).
1 trip Keyhole Canyon - Zion Main Canyon
Date: 09/08/2019
several wades, almost up to sports bra. STINKY water, really gross, but not terribly cold. gorgeous little canyon with an excellently short approach.
1 trip Boundary Canyon - Zion West Side
Date: 09/07/2019
Boundary was totally dry, Kolob was low (one swimmer pool, but only mid-belly after a long jump with an assist). MIA trail SUCKED. Wow do not underestimate. 6.5 car to car. - took one wrong turn towards top of MIA and had to bushwhack a bit.
5 trip Green River Daily - Green River
Date: 05/26/2019
Not sure what the CFS was for the day, but based on our group's opinion the water was HIGH and FAST. Rapids were minimal, barely got wet! Only took a couple hours. Stopped for a pinata break :)
5 trip3 trip Little Grand Canyon - San Rafael Swell
Date: 05/25/2019
560's flow, Gnar group of 24. Little muddy on the roads, but overall great flow.
5 trip3 trip Little Grand Canyon - San Rafael Swell
Date: 05/18/2019
First time floating the river. Dropped in farther upstream, great campsite. 20 mile bike shuttle took about 2 hours, ride was just fine and totally doable. flow was 515ish,
1 trip Lost and Found Canyon - Arches National Park
Date: 04/02/2019
A few wet spots, watch your rope
1 trip Yankee Doodle Canyon - Leeds
Date: 11/18/2018
knee-thigh wades, one waist-deep pool. easily passable dirt road to trailhead. beautiful and fun!
