    Southern Utah Canyoneering

    I'm going to admit that I have become reluctant to continue posting trip reports here because it seems like they generate little interest. I feel like I waste my time posting the reports when no one really cares. But I'm going to give it one last chance with a short report before I totally...

    A weekend in North Wash

    Five or six years ago during my first trip to Grand Gulch we drove through Hanksville along Highway 95 and I remember thinking how beautiful that section of highway was and I would love to get out and explore it a little more. However, as far as I can tell there isn't really many backpacking...

    Canyoneering East Blarney, Big Springs East, hiking to some less frequented areas in Moab

    I have also posted this TR at Canyon Collective, but I'm adding a little more to the hiking section on here. After being stuck at work for three months and not getting down to the desert since January, I finally got the chance to take some time off and go play down south on April 11th...

    Morocco Canyon

    Morocco Canyon has eluded me for years now. Every Time I have tried to run that canyon, something happened that made it so I couldn't. Well, not this time! I was attending a Canyon Rescue Course at North Wash Outfitters, and we had a free morning that Friday. It didn't take much to convince my...

    Poison Fest!

    What happens when you gather 8 people to do 3 canyons in one day? POISON FEST! As I think about this trip I am amazed. This group consisted of 8 people. 3 of whom I have never met before. 1 who came from out of state and even one who came from out of the country! Brett drove 8+ hours from New...

    Shimrock on Ice 12-31-14

    The hogs had been cold and blustery, but the night brought more snow and wind. We awoke on the last day of the year to several inches of the white stuff in camp. Spidey's kids had had enough but essentially everyone else was up for some intimate contact with the snow. Tom organized a trip to...

    Easter Weekend Day 1: 4/20

    Having just finished an internship and not having any school I found myself with a plethora of free time before another commitment. I wanted to go out and do something but the vast amount of options had me stuck in a rut. Scott Patterson sending an open invite for a short canyon on Easter was...

    Spring Fling turned Oktoberfest trip

    I am finally writing my Spring Fling trip report. First, this trip was postponed until October, it is now the Utah Oktoberfest trip. I flew into SLC on Friday Oct 11th. Immediately I grabbed my rental, a Ford SUV AWD. Clearance was fair but no Toyo truck. I headed out of town through SLCs...

    Morocco - March 29, 2013

    After a late night drive, Morocco seemed like a great way to introduce several friends from Idaho to the North Wash area. We left camp mid-morning and after the short approach hike were ready to drop into the canyon less than an hour later. Several folks were a bit surprised by the cairn anchor...

    Morocco Canyon

    After descending Leprechaun Canyon on Saturday, we returned to the area to do one more canyon before heading home. Our target: Morocco. I'd heard Morocco was good for larger folks such as myself which proved to be the case. It also proved to be a fantastic canyon with a lot of character and...

    Leprechaun Canyon - East Fork

    After my trip to Yellowstone, I was itching to get back to the desert and finish off the year with a few weekends of canyoneering. We kicked it off with a quick weekend trip to the North Wash area. This was my first time canyoneering North Wash and I was a bit apprehensive about the 'skinny...

    Poison Springs: Arscenic, Constrychnine & Slideanide

    I know that I'm not very good at writing TR's and I feel really guilty. I'm not even that good at keeping up on here in genral. But I feel like I owe a few TR's so when I'm trying *not* to study I'll try to catch up. I got invited on a last min trip to hit some canyons. I was originally going...

    North Wash Area - March 8-11

    So, once upon a time, I really wanted to learn canyoneering, and learn it right. But alas, I knew no one personally at the time who was an experienced canyoneer. So, I turned to the one resource I had: school. I signed up for Canyoneering I (and two others) with the U. I was beyond excited. 2...
