Descended NW Three and took the route along the Green River out. Great time in the canyon, a little swimming/bushwhacking to get to the river. Encountered some boaters who were unsure we could make it along the steep slickrock ledge along the horseshoe bend in the river (we were also somewhat skeptical).

In Kelsey's understated style he describes this as "exiting along a steep slickrock bench which is now an emerging trail" next to the river. We had no problem, but be aware this is not a leisurely walk next to the river, there is some climbing and scrambling along a steep angled slickrock ledge where the footing can be sketchy, 50-100ft above the river at times.

Descended the NW fork of Three Canyon on a rafting trip a week ago. I replaced the webbing at the first anchor and extended it, and the second rap was off of a new looking bolt backed by a small bush. There is delicious spring water in three canyon just past the exit. Somebody added a bunch of completely unnecessary bolts on the climbers exit. super lame.

South side has good anchors for only rappel. North fork had two swims that did not exist two weeks prior. Very cold water but wet suits not necessary, in and out. Large rappel has solid dead-man backed up with a tri-cam. Super fun Quick slot.
