We ran up to WCC this Sunday morning to do a Bear & Sundance figure 8 loop.
Started off with Bear since it's the easier of the two by far and one of the guys didn't have much rope experience. This short & sweet canyon is always a fun little romp but after like 5 times of descending it, some of the magic is starting to wear off.
Plenty of bushwhacking and down climbing before reaching the narrows. The first rappel was bone dry, so we down climbed it. That first swimmer was like 6 inches below the lip but we still beach whaled out of it without too much difficulty. We all did that sweet 25ft rappel before straddling the log and plunging deeper down the rabbit hole.
Soon we hit that awkward 10ft chockstone rappel with logs below. Skilled log balancers can avoid getting wet above their waist but after some more sweet narrows there's that final chest high pool to wade before unfortunately exiting the narrows into the mostly dry rock & boulder filled lower canyon. We dropped gear and rock hopped down to the always beautiful WCC before making the steep climb up the Point trail.
