Finally got to knock this one out. Was a PERFECT day for canyoneering and I really enjoyed this canyon. I am wondering if some major changes have happened to this canyon since the description. I can't imagine anyone zig-zagging down the waterfall in Hackberry, it is a vertical 30 ft drop to a ledge now. Also the tree mentioned at the end of pool 4 seems no longer in existance.

Regardless we brought plenty of ropes and had a great time playing in all 5 pools. A shorty fended off hypothermia well enough, although I do tend to run a little warm compared to others. Got to test out some new ascending techniques and the gear worked well, though I need to practice a bit more to get it down fluidly. Hands are now hamburger though from ropework and just abuse taken on the hike.

Found a 30 year old toolbox hidden amongst some rocks, tools look good quality although 30 years of rust has taken their toll. Luckily the bushwhacking isn't very bad although it seems slow going the whole way with the nontechnical boulder hopping. Jawjacked with some climbers on the way out while waiting for the rest of my party.

While practicing stealth techniques :) saw two deer and a couple of coatis...cool!
