Dry. Anchors in good shape. Road in good shape. Almost no snow in the area.

All water was avoidable. The stemming had lots of friction. The hardest part was how wide three of the downclimbs started. They required committing, dynamic moves to get into the crack. I would not have been comfortable without a stronger climber than I to belay me down once and spot me. We built one anchor from a rock we pushed into the slot, but I recommend checking it carefully to make sure the webbing hasn't shifted.

Canyon was dry, not even any puddles. There is some water once you exit the canyon on your way back to the car, but it is mostly avoidable, at worst you get your feet a little damp. We dc'd everything but the mandatory rappel so we didn't look at other anchors, the mandatory rap anchor was a little frayed, but not to the point of replacing.

Dry. Anchors in good shape.

Shorter in length than Hog 1 or 2, but more stemming and more committing down climbs.

Razorback is in great shape. We rebuilt two anchors (one optional), with new webbing. Thigh deep water near the end; avoidable if you are tall and talented.

Strenuous down climbing and sketchy exit. Almost stepped on a sleeping rattlesnake in the flats above. Avoidable water with stemming. Rappel anchors in place. Three anchors total all from deadmen ( rock cairns). The anchors looked good, but hard to tell, so be warned. 3 rating because it was not worth the trouble IMO.

There was an anchor at the rappel and the first big downclimb. I don't recall seeing any water in the canyon, if there is any it is easily avoidable.

This canyon was completely dry. I mean dry as the surface of the moon. The pool at the bottom was non-existent. There was an anchor near the start at a chimney section that we did use for a couple people. It is easier, and (in my opinion) safer to do a belayed, sequenced down-climb. Due to the crack you can get your foot caught in when you start the rappel and the narrowness of the bottom.
