A friend and I did this with ZAC (a trip we won) and had a great time! All of the rappels are all bolted except the 1st one, which we used a fiddlestick. It was flowing good, probably 2-3cfs and the Eye of the Needle rappel is awesome! Our ZAC guide descended before us on a side-drainage and we were able to ascend 400+ ft back to the top of the canyon, rather than continue on down to the MIA exit. Great guide, fun canyon, but not one I would do in the near future. Heck of a place to find (which the gates locked by key) by car though. Oh, our Guide and my buddy used drysuits while I used a 3/2 shortie and was okay. Any larger groups and I would use a 5mm wetsuit or drysuit due to exposure.
