The deepest water had a hand line to get down in and was a wade that came up to the belly button, but if it rains recently, I could see that being either a much deeper wade or potentially including a short swim due to the rockfall that creates the pool. Sun was shining down onto the water at several points and so made for slightly voice elevating water temps but everything was short and the weather was warm enough to remain comfortable. No need for a wetsuit even for cold-prone folks. The water was all clean (brown but no organics) and it has been raining quite a bit in the area this last few weeks; all the ground around is well saturated so if there’s storms, it’ll run off more readily.

The anchors were all in good condition.

Obviously, really really remote canyon, outside the NPS boundary, so as always, be safe and capable of self rescue!
