I decided to enjoy this warm weekend by doing some more wet canyoneering and what an amazing day it ended up being! :D The recent cold spell must have brought some more moisture to the Sierra Anchas because there was much more water in the canyon than what previous triplogs reported. I was wearing a full 3mm wetsuit, so I was good and my buddy seemed fine in his shorty but his friend was rather cold going without... :o There ended up being about a half dozen swimmers/shoulder high waders. We setup a rappel from that cave for that first 'downclimb' and the slides were a blast. The next two short raps were cool, we skipped the Cadillac exit and did the sweet 50ft and 80ft raps before exiting up that drainage on the west side just after the 80-footer. The tall red quartzite walls, rocks fins & spires were very sweet to admire as we walked thru that central section between the two technical sections. That exit canyon has some light bushwhacking and cactus dodging, loads of rock hopping, a loose scree chute, and some light scrambling but nothing too bad. Thanks to Todd Martin for posting this update to his book on his website so we could enjoy most of the technical section and still make an extended loop hike out of it. :GB:

Finally a Great Hiking App This is a must have for the avid or even beginning hiker. Easy to set up and use. The Topo maps and the ability to download a track prior to hiking, will ensure I get out of the Wilderness OK. If I set my phone to Airplane Mode, (GPS On) I've gone 13 hours with battery to spare. Recent upgrades have made this very user friendly for both the occasional Hiker/Walker to the All Day Hikers. Lots of Stats available to keep track of what you are doing.
