You get to sleep in on Hole day. After sipping scotch at midnight and a restful sleep, the call went out at 8 AM. The sun was up, offering one of the few sunrises of note, on the trip.Read More
Beautiful weather. Shane invited us down to the North Wash Area for a couple new "gems" he had beta on. Sure, why not? Always up for doing something new. Where? Can't tell ya - it's a secret.Read More

After a quick lunch in the sun, Dave gives us the beta on Left Fork. Dave and Deb go off exploring.
Shane has been exploring a new slot canyon area down near Hanksville, and was getting ready to release it to the Circle of Few when, ahem, well, they got kinda stuck. Sounded intense, so it seemed like a good time to go check it out.
