Met at Round Valley at 7am to drop of a vehicle, then drove over to Bushnell tanks to start the day. It’s a nice creek saunter for a while with mild rock hopping and sandy washes. Beautiful canyon walls on either side of you and many flowing cascades. Then things start getting a little more interesting quickly. After about 4 miles, we needed to inflate the floaties and start swimming. It was a warm day and the water felt amazing. There were several large waterfalls and pools to navigate around and teamwork was helpful here. It was slow moving and very slippery in the canyon. Some of the downclimbs were pretty tricky with the amount of water flowing. The waterfalls were GUSHING! The last downclimb was pretty scary without ropes. We were rewarded with many gorgeous pools for swimming and cooling off. *do not attempt this route unless you are very comfortable with class 3 downclimbs (one wrong move could result in bad injury) or jumping into pools of water and mandatory swimming. Do not underestimate this route! It’s a long, exhausting day, but one you’ll look back on and feel accomplished*
