Good point.
I'll bring rope.

Re: Royal Arch Route Trip Coming Up...

I'm putting together a Royal Arch Loop trip for the spring and had two questions for the HAZ experts. I've yet to read a triplog where there was not both webbing and a rope at the 20 foot rappel. Would anyone care to weigh in on throwing the dice and not bringing a rope? And if I bring one, I think ...

Re: Royal Arch Route, AZ. Rappel and upclimb options.

@louie
I have not done this route yet, but the anchor point seems to be a substantial rock pillar. 20' of webbing and 40' of rope is recommended.

Re: Nankoweap Intermittent Pools

@Canyonram Perhaps because my water needs were addressed I did not pay close attention, but I do not recall seeing any pools larger than say 16 oz. Like most people, if my mind does not attach significance to an experience, it is erased. I don't want anyone relying on my tinaja beta. I wonder which...

Re: Nankoweap Intermittent Pools

@Canyonram Having already carried in 96 oz., I had no need, but it did occur to me. I didn't see any significant pools - I would rather drink rainwater than what reconstitutes in some of those. The tent fly in place on the tent barely funnels at all. I could have used my mylar and gathered 96 0z. n...

@chumley
Thank you.
I didn't like the idea of risking it, but with the temperature and rain forecast my ultralight plan has suddenly gained a lot of weight.

Nankoweap Intermittent Pools

Does anyone know if there are significant intermittent pools in the Tilted Mesa area on Nankoweap?
The forecast calls for rain and I'm considering bringing my 3x32 Oz cache empty and filling it when I get near that area.

Re: Grand Canyon Bucket List

I'm amazed that you made a video to better explain the process. HAZ does indeed Rock. Today every time I click Areas it does exactly what it's supposed to. The two arrows must have become bored chasing each other. Now I just have to update my GC completed - I'm not sure why it only shows the Deer Cr...

Re: Grand Canyon Bucket List

@joebartels I've tried a few days in a row, but all I get is two arrows chasing each other in a circle. I've been able to navigate to the GCNP areas list several different ways, and the map option works, but that's it. It looks like what you are describing would work great, I hope it's something si...

Grand Canyon Bucket List

Has anyone put together something like an Excel Spreadsheet that lists all of the Grand Canyon trails, with distance, AEG, difficulty, water access, etc.? I think it would be a great tool if you could sort and rearrange all on one document. I'm considering putting one together, and would share it he...

@Tough_Boots I thought I replied to this days ago, but now I don't see it. Is that what you want to do? I don't understand what you are suggesting. The Battleship and the Ridgeline are on my bucket list, and our shop closes for a week during the holidays - I take what I can get. I also am not a fan ...

Superstition Ridgeline Loop

I'm in the planning stages for a 2-3 night backpack around the end of the year and was hoping to pick the collective HAZ brain. So far I'm parking at the Lost Dutchman, hiking to First Water, bagging Battleship, camp, heading south on Boulder Canyon, then to Peralta to Fremont Saddle, camp, then off...

Re: 6th Annual New Year's Day Hike

Some things have come up, and I was on the edge of cancelling - the rain forecast just made it a little easier. I can blame the weather. :oops: I'm sure whoever makes it will find the company warm and the bubbly cold - unless someone thinks of hot chocolate! Thanks again Pam for the effort - enjoy. ...

maybe he'll take me on my first Trip below the Rim! Unless you beat me there I certainly will. I know you love water, but that requires a lot of AEG.
