Ascent Trip Report

This attempt was after a recent rainstorm, and there was more water in the canyon than expected, which slowed us down. Then, about where we turned around, it looked like the weather was turning, so we decided to take a lunch break and then head down.

The route involved some moderate scrambling and decent route-finding. While there were cairns, there are cairned routes going up many of the drainages. Also, as seen on my GPS track, the canyon walls tend to make the GPS accuracy spotty at best.
