Finally made this trip after talking about it for a while. We did Escalante Route starting from Lipan Point after we setup the shuttle from New Hance trailhead. Down Tanner trail about 1030 with a little bit of snow in the top section. Great trail so we made it to camp relatively early which was Tanner Beach. Good camp but a bit cold with some frozen slush in the water bag.

All packed we started on the Escalante Route downstream first passing the ruin above Cardenas and a short break. Great views as we climbed away from the river and across the long traverse into Escalante Creek. Took a break at the beach of Escalante Creek and the river. Then continued down river to Seventyfive Mile Creek which was very cool section. Fun hike along the rim and the drop into the canyon following the narrows back out to the river. From there another traverse over to Papago Wall. Once at the wall I heard someone yell Karl and looked up to see my friend Joel @RedwallNHops and his group. Always fun when you run into hiking friends unexpectedly and chatted for a while. It was getting late so we continued up the wall and down the slide which took some time. Papago Slide is pretty loose and steep especially with big packs. After that about 1 mile to camp at New Hance Rapids.

Another nice night in camp and this time water did not freeze. Next morning we packed up and hiked out New Hance. John was a little ways ahead and managed to get the other shuttle vehicle by the time we reached the rim. Great trip!
