I'll send an email out with meeting place/time but most likely we'll meet at the Grove of the Patriarchs Trailhead at 8am, consolidate into as few cars as possible (with masks on, windows open, and without someone in a middle seat), and drive about 5 minutes to the start.

Please bring a mask in a waterproof case, and carry it in your wetsuit. This is an aquatic canyon, and you get wet almost immediately. We don't spend much time in close proximity, but please have a dry mask available for those times.

If you need to borrow gear, please email me by Wednesday evening so I have time to go to the PC to pick it up.
