rocky mouth rappel (canyoneering) - July 4, 2022

Come participate in a Holiday descent of Rocky Mouth waterfall before it dries up. We will meet at the trailhead in the parking lot off of Wasatch blvd. From there we will hike just under .4 miles to the base of the waterfall. There is a steep dirt trail to the left of the waterfall, we will hike up the steep trail to where it begins to fade a bit and traverse right on the rock around the arete. This section is no harder than a class 4. Once around the arete we will scramble back down to the canyon floor and the top of the waterfall.
The waterfall can be rapped in two stages. The first rappel is a little over 30 feet off of a solid tree. The final rappel is a little over 80 feet over a large boulder and down a chute. You will get wet, westsuits are NOT required.
I will bring 2 ropes but if you have ropes, feel free to bring them.
Required Equipment: water, harness, helmet, rappel device, and carabiners.
Optional Equipment: webbing, quick links, pocket knife, figure 8 or other blocking device, rope, VT prusiks or ascending device, personal anchor.
