canyoneering - the swell - May 7, 2010
No northwash prerequisite for this trip, the only requirement for this trip is that you have attended a WMC rapelling class (see March 20). Adventurous first timers welcome. Eardley Canyon involves a rigorous hike up a steep ridgeline, followed by a careful scramble down a steep loose gully. While not a classic slot per se, there are 5 raps into pools, which are a lot of fun, and, weather depending, may require wetsuits, though if its hot, the pools are short, so you might get by OK if you tend to run warm. After the canyon we will pack up and head further into the Swell, to do a Baptist Draw/Chute loop, which can also have water, though it is often dry. Leaving afternoon Friday the 7th, home Sunday the 9th. This trip is now full, but i will put some names on a waiting list in case there are cancellations.
