Dry. Loose bolts were tightened with multitool, but one could still use wrench.

Good summer canyon. One belly deep pool in the Frylet/Upper Slot and one nice and cold swim in the lower narrows. No wetsuit needed on this hot day.

Excellent conditions; canyon itself is only OK. Some ice and frozen waterfalls, but only on short section is slightly challenging because of ice. One anchor is covered in 3" of ice. All poison ivy is devoid of leaves.

Dry except for pools that are easy to avoid.

There were two real pools in the canyon, but we could get around one. The last pool going down canyon is hard to get around and has shin deep water.

Still pretty full. Keeper pothole just emerging, but less than a foot below being brim full. Water slightly chilly in a few places, but was pleasant without wet suits since we didn't leave until 11 am.

Lots of water in the canyon. Only a few pools were cold, no wet suits taken.

Mud in West Fork will make it very difficult to ascend until the mud and pool dries up.

South fork is nearly dry. One small pool to stem and only a little mud.

Canyon is dry. If driving in from Colorado, the driving route from Cisco is more straightforward than the driving route from the Yellowcat Exit off I-70.

Canyon is dry and all anchors are in good condition.

All water was avoidable with some stemming. We fixed up one anchor and the rest were in pretty good condition.

There was one knee deep to waist deep pool depending on whether or not you can traverse part of the pool on small ledges (the taller people in our party could).

Some of the anchors were in poor condition and I pulled one of the chockstones someone recently used and it immediately failed with just a hard yank. Make sure to test all anchors (as always).

Completely dry except for one very easily skirtable pool. Anchors in good condition. Deadman at final rap is in good condition.
