Going to be in Escalante area in spring with no particular plan other than to go explore some things - I don't do that often enough. Every hobby has a sub-hobby and one of mine is to just look at a topo and go see if routes that look like they should go actually do - very often they don't. Below is a map of something many here have done - Lower Calf Creek. I haven't been there since it became overrun with people - which is to say years - but lately I've gotten a little obsessed with the idea of getting above the falls and possibly even connecting a hike with Upper Calf Creek falls, but I've never heard of anyone doing it. The blue line on the map below looks like a possibility. Anyone ever tried this? I know the area reasonably well and I realize it would be very rugged up there even if it did go.
