Went up sheepbone and down quarry. All the handlines that had been left in place looked good. First person up climbed without the handline and inspected it before using. There are anchors at the top of each climb that you can easily use to belay someone up or descend the canyon. Sheepbone is a beautiful slot. The turnoff to head up to the saddle between the two canyons is not very obvious. We passed it and ended up bushwhacking for a bit to get back to the top of Quarry. Lots of anchor options in Quarry, more than what's needed for sure. All the anchors we used were in good shape. Looks like someone recently replaced a bunch of webbing. Overall a fun loop.

PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU INSPECT THE HANDLINES BEFORE USING THEM! We had a ranger flag us down before we started, and he said they have had several injuries and one death in the last year because of bad handlines.

Dry. 78 degrees and sunny/shady. All webbing intact and in decent shape. One rappel has some weird cheap chain link on it, but this area is also just a 10 foot downclimb so rappelling on the weird link is optional and low risk/consequence.
