canyoneering cherry canyon in the virgin river george - November 1, 2019
The WMC offers COVID conscious opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. Participants of all in-person events should bring and wear face coverings, expect social distancing, and changes to our usual practices. To support contact tracing and hands-free signing of the WMC Liability Waiver, online registration is required for all in person WMC events.Cherry Canyon Take 2. This is an exploratory trip as I have not done these canyons. This is not a beginner trip. You must be an experienced self-sufficient canyoneer (have experience on 200' rappels and the ability to add friction while on rope). We attempted this canyon in the spring but the water in the Virgin river was too high to safely cross. We will try to bag this canyon again. Cherry Canyon is in the Virgin River Gorge near Mesquite NV. We will drive down Friday night and stay at the Virgin River Hotel for two nights (we have 8 rooms reserved). We will be splitting into two groups to do Cherry Canyon on Saturday. On Sunday you will have the opportunity to do a canyon on the way home. Please review Road Trip Ryan's canyon beta to be familiar with the canyon and experience required. Depending on weather the actual canyon and location may change. Priority will be given to WMC members, and people who can bring common gear (ropes in good condition and in a rope bag) or write the Rambler article. Looking for several 200' ropes and some 100' ropes. TO RESERVE YOUR SPOT 1) use the link below to join the wait list, 2) email me if you have ropes (diameter and length) or are willing to write a Rambler article, 3) then I will email you my address so you can send me an $80 non-refundable check (estimated cost for the hotel, permits, webbing, quick links; does NOT include travel costs, 4) once I have received your check you will be moved from the Meetup wait list to the going list. Contact me if you have any questions.
