Sneak route- tippy top full, terminal narrows still had a slight flow to it after the storm on Monday. Trash compactor is definitely sucky. First rap after the right sneak comes in has some very unstable logs to climb down- careful. Water was definitely chilly in a 6/3 wetsuit. All webbing looked serviceable but much of it will need replacing in the Spring.

For East Lep. Anchors in good shape. We heard the North Wash took a direct hit 3/22 with a passing storm cell. Roughly the bottom 1/3 of the canyon is filled with water. Several thigh high spots and one surprise drop that was nipple deep on me (and I'm 6'6"). However almost all water is avoidable, some sections requiring some impressive feats if you are that dedicated. I, on the other hand, was packing kids through and can tell you the depth of every pool.

Bone dry. Webbing in good shape. Good canyon with 2 noobs. Lighting in the birth canal was incredible mid afternoon.

One short, easily avoidable stretch with water, otherwise dry. Webbing looked good. Fun canyon. More physical than anticipated but nothing too hard.

Not a drop of water with the lack of recent moisture. Road in good shape from Green River. Very washboarded near horseshoe jct. 2.5 hrs to bridge and back with a 6 and 3 year old. They loved it.

Road is snow covered but usable. We did the first rap but ascended back up as all potholes are chuck-full of water with a thin layer of ice on them. Canyon walls covered in snow so avoiding potholes was impossible. We removed the webbing on the first rap as it was garbage- bring some with you to set this up. This canyon looks great- it's definitely on the list for a return visit.

Road is covered in snow but passable. Canyon walls have lots of snow. Probably 8-9 sections of ice-covered water, 4 of which are belly button to nipple deep. Ice is 2" thick. Standard exit is impossible with the snow. Exit up left chute ~150 yards early or walk 50 yards past the standard exit and shimmy up the chute. Not easy. Best to stay away for now.

Great canyon if you have 1.5 hrs at the end of the day. 3rd time thru this year and the existing anchors are always in different spots. Lots of options for anchors if you look around, especially up. Water has been the same near the arch and in the lower stretches on every trip but you don't need to get wet.

Short canyon but one of the few NW canyons with several longer raps. There are several anchor possibilities at the 1st and 3rd raps. We collected about 50 feet of wasteful webbing at the 3rd drop that still didn't reach the lip to prevent grooves. Thanks for the webbing to whoever set that up. To prevent grooves- use a fiddlestick, plain and simple. Water in the pothole, but no one went in to see how deep it was.

West- anchors in good shape, removed excess webbing, only water is below the confluence with East and is almost knee-high. Pure fun. Group of 8 took 3 hours.

West- bone dry, anchors good. 2:15 with group of 8. Very scenic after the last rap.

Highest water in the canyon is knee-thigh deep. However it rained the day after we did it. Water is fairly cold and pungent. Good combo day with neon. Roughly 2 hrs although we entered the canyon earlier than the beta suggests. All the real fun is the lower half. Headlamp mandatory.

Had fun with the family in this one. All drops are now bolted into submission, except the final deadman rap. Probably did 6 or so short raps. Zero water. Anchors good- deadman showing a little wear but dug down and it still looks good. Sand hill exit is fast but will make a 5 year old complain for quite some time.

Road out to Poison Springs easy for a 2WD. Currently one small pool, avoidable if you can pull off a whopping 20 foot stem. Webbing on the rap looks new. Beautiful canyon.

Road out to Poison Springs is easy for a 2WD. Not even a drop of water. Newish anchors still but watch the rubbing on the webbing on the first rap where it extends over the lip. One of the funnest canyons around (if you have knee/elbow pads).
