Day 1 - Descended West Fork - Short fork but fun. Last rap was a 260 so I luged around a 260 ft rope. The plan was to get water at deer spring , but it was dry. Hiked back down to the creek and grabbed water then hauled it up to surprise valley. 13 hr day - got to Surprise after dark
Day 2 - Got a 5:30 start and hiked up to the Middle fork. What an amazing canyon. Downclimbs, slides, rappels. Brought wetsuits but it wasn't too cold.
Day 3. Out via Bill Hall trail
