5 man group of Imlay virgins, left sneak, car to car in 11 hours. water seemed mostly full, 3-4 foot lips usually yielded to partner assist. hooked one time. totally fun. wore 3-6 mm of wetsuits and were all happy.

team of 3, all Heaps Virgins. Lava point start at 3:15 am. first narrows by 8:00, Crossroads by 10:40, finished narrows 3 by 2:50, 1 hour break at the top of the last raps, shuttle by 6:00pm.

water almost full, mostly beached whale exits, one or 2 pack tosses. i wore 3mm farmer john, 5 mm vest with hood, 3mm full with gloves and neo socks, i was plenty warm.

be wary of the last 3 rappels, not for the faint of heart! over all the most epic canyon ive ever done!

dry canyon. road was pretty washboarded but nothing terrible, passable by Subaru outbacks and other similar cars. do little bull after!

rangers said it was full, but i would guess it was closer to 2/3 full. we were all in 3mm and it was chilly but fine. I would suggest wearing wetsuit gloves. webbing was new throughout the canyon.

More fun than Hog 2, tons of stemming and fun downclimbs. no water, but some mud. Road was mellow, besides some mud build up in the middle of the road.
