chute canyon car camp - April 30, 2016

It's been 7 years since Donn has done his favorite San Rafael hike, upper Chute Canyon. This is an all-day shuttle hike through an amazingly deep, amazingly narrow slot in an unexpected location in the center of the Swell. It's a special place where the light bounces off walls high above you and produces an orange glow. On Donn's route, there is a fair amount of scrambling with one short rappel, but the rappel is the only technical part. In some years, there can be a bit of wading. This will be Donn's 8th trip into the canyon... On Sunday, we'll find another fun hike to do, perhaps the Ding/Dang Canyons loop. Limit: 11.
