Very dry conditions. Only water was in the corridor that can be bypassed with a guided rappel or raft on over :) Muddy in a few spots. New bolts all over the place in middle waterholes. Some older bolts in lower section are sketchy per usual. Sand seems to be filling in a lot places. Group of four from bridge to beach in 7 hours. Fun day with nice weather. Please note you now need to pay to park behind the gate at the bridge. No road parking anymore is permitted.

Canyon was bone dry. One little puddle at the end of the guided rap corridor. Group of 7 from the car to the river with a long break for lunch in 6.5 hours. Most anchor material is in good shape. Dead cow still in there but is fairly decayed.

Very Dry. Getting down the big rap sequence at the end should be taken very serious. Rap into crack is so tight then rap onto (Tom Jones anchor) 3" ledge 20 feet down that really doesn't even fit 2 people. Must have been 5 ropes and pull cords in the cracks above and below ledge. Throw rope out away from crack at final 300 ft drop. Ideal set up a contingency with the pull 300 ft rope at this point. When pulling rope tie another rope (you can likely pick one up on the way down the rap) and walk out as far as possible before pulling ropes.

Very dry condition. Only water was in the corridor that can be bypassed with a guided rappel. Well at least for everyone but one in the group :) Anchors were in fair to good condition.
