when are the plans of what canyon to do usualy made?
You may want to have an idea before you go, but usually the plans are not finalized until we meet down there. Usually the night before. We've found out it works better that way because we can evaluate skills, equipment, time and conditions. Plus after the first canyon, people are either stoked for the next day, dead tired or beat up. It's best to have a flexible plan. If you want to do a tough one, it's best to do it on day 1 if you know the skills of your partners, but then again, there will be strangers there as well.
Make sure to be honest about your skills and don't kid yourself on this. On the other hand, if you are a beginner, don't be afraid to come either. I will be leading a beginner canyon on day 2. Others plan on doing one on day 1.
So far, here are some of the choices that people are interested in:Advanced:
A new canyon (un-named so far)Intermediate:
No Mans Canyon
Robbers Roost - North Fork
I'll start to get a head count, but expect the numbers to change as time gets closer. I'll post everything on the original post.
Who's still interested in going?
I'm slow and fat. Unfortunately, those are my good qualities.
