Completely dry. Canyon still nice and clean of any man-made anchors.

KPH has waist deep water and slippery mud. A couple other pools were knee deep. We cleaned some anchors up, although they still could use some work to remove some of the redundant webbing.

The bolt on the bypass of the KPH was there and usable, maybe it was replaced since last report? Water below that only chest deep and clean. All anchors good to go. Log in final KPH makes it simple to exit.

Canyon cmpletely dry. The walls were very dirty making them slick. Kelsey's exit sucks. Next time I would exit east towards E2.

Water in some pools was lower than usual. We went without suits but wished we had them. There were still a couple mandatory swims but water was fairly clean. Anchors in good condition. One existing anchor was removed beause its pull was causing grooves.

Water levels were pretty low compared to normal, but there were still several cold swims. Some of us wore 3/2 suits and were fine. Black Hole swim was log soup but not a log jam. Was not as stinky as it could have been.

Anchors in good shape. We replaced webbing at one, and extended the last to the edge. "Keeper" was completely dry, but easy to go over. All water avoidable, would be nasty if you had to go in.

Went down Little Bluejohn, up Main. Everything still dry. Very crowded. Picked up trash everywhere (cigarette butts, plastic bags, lots of webbing, etc.) One anchor in Main had 5 slings on it, we removed 4 of them. Rope grooves in Little are getting bad at first rap, people are not extending webbing past tree.

Just to add to Peakbagger's report, West Fork is completely dry as well. FWIW, the WF is a much more enjoyable exit than the Main Exit that is beta'ed on Climb-Utah. It avoids the cross-country sand slog. The one upclimb is very easy.

Middle Lep still bone dry. Anchors still good, although pretty much a rat nest of extended bright colored webbing. Someone recently lost a lot of blood in there!

The canyon was dry, even considering the storm that hit the day before. All anchors in good shape, other than the final rap, where there is no anchor present and we didnt take the time to build one. However, it wouldnt be hard as there is plenty of material present.

Lots of water, a couple places my wife could not touch bottom (She is 5'4"). Anchors all still good. Bolts on last rap now gone, plenty of natural features to choose from. Took us 7 hours.
