We did full oak creek and the water levels were quite high. Downclimbing was impossible on drops and had to be rappelled, and the water makes the rappels very difficult to control. We had to stay out of the watercourse for the 170' rappel. There are a few anchors that will need to be replaced since we fiddlesticked a few drops that didn't have anchors.

Lower Oak water level is good but you will get pounded on the second half of the first rappel, the bottom of the 170 ft rappel, and perhaps one or two others.

There is a dead mountain sheep about 100 yds past the 170 ft rappel. I was alone and already maxed out with gear so I could not remove it. Unfortunately I will be out of town until June 24 and won't be back in the canyon until then. A heavy rain could wash it down stream but it will take alot of water to wash it out of the canyon.
