Take #2 in dry washes east of Forest Road 11. Pretty much the same as yesterday... same type of terrain and same warm weather. Yet I will get plenty of unexpected climbing in due to being stopped by two separate tall dry-falls, once from below, once from above.

Detour 1 took me a full hour, but that was simply due to taking a LONG, wide, sight-seeing arc before returning to look down from above.

Detour 2 was nasty... the walls on either side were a good 40-50 feet high so I had a treacherous ascent, followed a half-mile later by a slightly-less treacherous but far nastier descent through a boulder-field some three-boulders deep as well as thickets of thorny brush.

The best part about this detour was how well my new calf-height gaiters worked. Absolutely fabulous! I was unexpectedly pleased with their performance. (In the past I've tried a half-dozen different gaiters with results from 'meh' to 'awful')
