***Lost camera in upper keeper***

Keeper conditions on a couple of the mid-section narrows. First big keeper is waist deep water with the rim 6-8' above. Pack toss, or partner assist both worked well. If anyone goes in, in the near future please look for a camera in the upper keeper. We looked for quite a while, but the water got stirred up and impossible to see.

Upper section of canyon is very dry, Middle section of the canyon was super muddy. Both keepers were just deep enough that you could barley touch the bottom, water level was about 3ft from the top. We used potshots with rocks to exit both potholes. The water was pretty chilly so we were happy to be in 3mm wet suits in the pools.

Lot's of water, basically no raps in the whole route needed if you did the walk around on the upper rappel. Ghost from bush if rap, keep canyon clean. The Keeper pothole is completely full of water. Basically a 2-3 foot drop into the pothole with an easy swim out. Canyon is holding lots of water, tons of fun right now. 4/3 wetsuit and 5mm booties perfect all day.

Dido previous entry, the rain did not make any changes to the canyon. Tons of fun working through this jewel. 1st Keeper muddy with a puddle. 2nd keeper waist deep. Handy to have wetsuit and headlamps.

Highest water in the canyon is knee-thigh deep. However it rained the day after we did it. Water is fairly cold and pungent. Good combo day with neon. Roughly 2 hrs although we entered the canyon earlier than the beta suggests. All the real fun is the lower half. Headlamp mandatory.

Pretty dry, both keepers were basically dry. For the first keeper we used a pack toss and rappelled across like a Tyrolean. Second keeper was easy with partner assist. Our party had only two people.

Amazing long, long tight squeeze slot section after the keepers! Would be even more fun without the packs...

Mostly dry. All water below mid-thigh. I personally would not recommend cold weather protection.

Couple of keepers, but we were easily able to partner assist out of without doing anything 'special' (we also had a team of four).

Fun had by all. All team members agreed it was in excellent shape.

We went bottom up the canyon, water was very full, nothing overhead in the slots, but the potholes were. We ascended to the bottom of the top pothole then reversed back down. Great scrambling opportunities. No Ropes, left some skin on the walls.
