Took 3 of us 65 minutes from car to car. No snow or ice in the canyon or on top. I think the 1st rappel needs a change because the new placement is creating new rope grooves!

And the pothole before the last rap has filled in with a bunch of sand in the middle and so you don't need to bridge across it anymore.

Pretty clean route now.

Fun, short route. 3 people, 2.5 hours car to car. No ice or snow and only one small ankle deep pool that can be bridged over. Anchors are in in good shape. The are chain anchors so webbing not a factor. It was cool in the shade and warm in the sun, but you work hard scrambling to the top which meant we were putting on and taking off our jackets often.
