I will be in Grand Gulch in a couple of weeks, at the mouth of Polly's Canyon. I was wondering if anyone has been in the area lately. I have always found water here. This year has been pretty dry.
Thanks

Still end up going? If so, how was the water situation on your trip?

I will be doing the Kane to Bullet route this week (Nov 16th) and hopefully explore some of the lower GG below Bullet if I find water out there. Otherwise I'm carrying enough for the full 3-4 days for the main route. Hurts just thinking about the pack weight. I imagine Green Mask and Bullet will have water - but this year has been rough for precipitation and all bets are off.

Will post a trip report with water info when I get back.
