canyoneering "exploratory" -canyon trifecta-neon, choprock and ringtail - May 12, 2021

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.
This year the trip into the Escalante River Valley to run 3 canyons is moved up earlier in the year expecting to have the canyons full of water. This is not a trip for beginners, they are wet canyons and two of them have an R rating. Choprock is the most physically enduring canyon and will be a long day (Approx 12 hours). We will backpack in on day 1 and leave on day 5. Groups of 6 will alternate canyons each day, the groups will be determined after the event reaches its max. You MUST be able to attend all days and physically able to participate every day, your team will need you each day. I can't express the physical demands required each day and especially on your specific Choprock day, this day, a faster than normal pace on the approach/ exit and efficiency in the canyon is a must. You need to RSVP at the meetup site: https://www.meetup.com/Wasatch-Mountain-Club/events/277457560/?isFirstPublish=true
