The water level was about one quarter of capacity. The lower half of the canyon is where all the good stuff is at. We took out the dead man anchor at the big rappel and used a sandtrap. We made the mistake of over building it and it took much effort to bring it down. This canyon is extremely beautiful! What an experience! The climb out was quite lively. Be very careful to not knock rocks down on the people below. Be ready to actually climb on the way out.

Brim full of water, multiple swims and many wades. Anchors are all in good shape and the SandTrap Pot hole is dry

Most of the canyon was reasonably dry. We encountered a couple of thigh deep wades in the middle of the canyon. There was one swim just before the big rappel. We did not need wetsuits on this 80 degree day.

The existing anchors are in good shape.

The roads were kinda crappy out that way, so a high clearance vehicle is recommended.

We took 5.5 hours car-to-car with a team of 8 people. Outstanding canyon!
