Come join on a trip through this fantastic canyon first descended less than three weeks ago. You'll get to be a part of the 2nd descent team (only 6 people have been through this canyon before), and observe anchor procedures that go into establishing a new canyon. Be aware that there will be some waiting time as anchors/bolts are maintained. Also note, beta is not yet posted on ropewiki for this canyon.

We will need at least 3 high clearance vehicles with room for 2-3 passengers for the shuttle. Please let the trip leader know if you have a vehicle that can transport several teammates (Covid precautions taken).
