Only five hikers signed up for this day. Scheduled to do Slide, but early morning rain made the easier Spur a better choice... and it was good! Easy to forget how great this Cut is... bedrock walking and big rock scrambles make for a solid footing day. Breezes and good cloud cover offset the warmer temps to give us a perfect outing... first time up this route for all the hikers.
Turning around at the upper Grotto makes this route an exceptional shorter hike... of course climbing the upper fall is also great... but then you have to do an exit that will always feel "less than". Better to enjoy the redo down the canyon!
