Finally we got ourselves over to this little less done canyon on the northern side of WCC. Mike and I met up with Pam in the morning who had already spent the night up there on Friday. She told us how the night was and how the roads seemed to look. The road in all the way to the Tramway TH didn't bother me one bit as I had my new toy to play with. But it is a rocky unmaintained path and for those without clearance should not even try to get there. Rain on the way out made it so much fun. :)

The canyon itself it pretty short, hardly any water in it at all, I don't think we got our feet wet until we reached WCC. We did all 5 rappels which made the day great. At the base of the second rappel in what would normally be a shallow pool, Mike found a gear bundle that had probably been underwater for some time. Too bad he cannot use any of it. Some amazing views towards the exit as you start to see where WCC is. The last rappel of this canyon was the best, and would be amazing if you could ever do it with some running water down the wall.

Into WCC and now for the hardest part of the day. Getting back to the Tramway trail. The skies above us started to get dark and sure enough it was Groundhog Day again. Pouring rain on us while in WCC. I swear every summer this has happened to us, but it's all good. Once up the Tramway trail we were offered some amazing views as the clouds rolled over the canyon, some lightning in the distance gave us a thrill. Pam got back up just as it was about to rain again so she did a quick change and off we went back out. Man that rocky muddy road was fun.

Another good adventure in the books.
