"Wait - I thought this was about 'Poe Canyon', formerly known as Smiling Cricket?" you may be asking.
Yeah, it is. After October's partially successful trip, Ram was anxious to get back at it and "send the project", the project being to complete Poe Canyon, a difficult, remote canyon on the WaterPocket Fold by 'fair means' - in this case, without using the bolts in the canyon, using advanced natural anchor techniques and technology, and careful downclimbing. South African Steve's invention of the Sand Trap earlier this summer had helped a lot, and we came back to Poe Canyon with a revised Sand Trap to try out.
But first, a lazy-ish weekend in North Wash was in order, and the canyon "No Kidding" provided a good opportunity to test out the new Trap. Dave Buckingham and Anna Rehkopf from ZAC and Springdale drove up for some slot action, and we met 'the gang' in North Wash. Mr. Brejcha-your-legs and Dan Ransom signed up for the NK, Dan happy to be a worker rather than cinematographer for a change.
