I've got permits to return to Royal Arch April 14-19. I'm excited to be heading back in to the canyon and back into see the Arch again... However, I'm a bit nervous about the drive in to Pasture Wash given the amount of snow that was up there recently. Anyone have a good idea of the road conditions? I've driven it in bad conditions before and survived...but I don't want to blindly walk into a hellish mud nightmare.
Also have a free spot on the trip for an experienced, fit hiker who can put up with my group. Strong rope skills would be a big plus since my rope man is on the fence about joining the group. I'm trying to decide if I'm comfortable enough setting up the rappel on my own and trusting it not only with my butt but the tender bits of three other people...PM me if you're interested.
