Woohoo, had the day off from work and threw a canyoneering trip together the night before and managed to get one unemployed friend to join me. :D I really wanted to hit this sweet canyon again while the flow was good and was rewarded to 2-3 times the flow as last time. :GB: This time instead of doing the upper extended start, we just looped around to the top of Big Kahuna Falls and dropping in at that amazing falls. It was flowing very nicely and a great way to break in my new pair of 5.10 canyoneers. :) We again crossed the trail and rock hopped our way down canyon to drop into the lower narrows with a few sweet waterfall rappels in there that were also flowing quite well. Enough to spook us a bit and give us a healthy respect for the power of water. :o After the narrows, we had some rock hopping & down climbing before we reached the exit where the trail comes very close to the canyon. Dropped gear after enjoying this amAZing canyon again and hiked out on a canyon buzz. :GB:
