A few swimmers, but no long swims as expected. Careful with the beta. We ended up doing 4 rappels in the west fork, the last of which was 50-60 ft long. You may need more rope than the beta implies.

All water avoidable with careful stemming, although one spot is hard to pull off without getting wet, and is knee deep. Everything else is pretty easy to avoid, unless you need to rebuild an anchor in a pothole.

Fantastic! Completely dry except for a pool at the bottom of the rounded downclimb / short rappel at the end.

A badger had fallen into one of the deeper slots before the rappels. Very much alive when we went through. If still alive, could continue to make passage difficult. Water up to waist deep.

No water until the end of the very last slot section. That pool is waist deep and maybe 50 feet long, but unavoidable. Replaced webbing on first rappel, other anchors were in good shape. Great canyon.

As expected full of cold water. Thanks to the recent rain, fairly clean, only saw three dead mice. Anchors all in good shape. Awesome canyon, don't forget the wetsuit!

Looks like the recent flood washed out some of the sand in the subway.

Canyon dry except for a little mud in a few potholes. All avoidable if you have decent balance.

Webbing and anchors all in decent shape, but webbing may need to be replaced soon depending on your risk tolerance.
