    I'm not sure how representative I am :lol2::lol2::

    I think I've just about sorted a plan that involves meeting various people from here and Canyon Collective. All being well and in a world where...

    Thanks a lot Jman, I really appreciate the offer!

    Let me start trying to put together a travel plan (that hopefully takes in Utah in a logical way rather than dashing back and forth between places...

    To be honest - if anyone's doing anything in Utah during those dates then I'd be prepared to head wherever, I've got total flexibility at the moment. The reason I've tentatively lined up North Wash...

    Thanks Doug, definitely, I've gotten lots of good advice from people here. I guess the time of year I'm looking at isn't peak season given the temperatures, and a lot of the canyoning activity is...

    Berating yourself for dawdling and thinking you missed out on this unique opportunity? Cursing the fact you hadn't visited Bogley for a while?

    Well, the great news is that I'm still in stock!

  7. Heading to the US for two weeks - looking to meet people!

    Hello!

    I'm a Brit who's heading over to the USA for two weeks, 17th to 31st August.

    I got the slot canyon bug a few years ago and always look forward to getting out to the Colorado Plateau. ...

    High Spur looked promising but wasn't sure on that long drive in, felt like we'd have to do a fair bit in the area to make it worthwhile.

    I'm currently looking at tackling:

    I've actually done Goblin's Lair (on my most recent trip) - agreed, it was amazing and I'd love to find something similar! Albeit I haven't yet found anything that seems particularly close to it...

    Thanks Shane - am reading up some more about the bomb bay. If I've understood everything right - you stem up and over a chockstone (unless you're tiny), go further than you would necessarily think...

    Thanks jman, that's super helpful.

    In terms of dates, it would be August. I know that's not necessarily advised as a time of year but we did Egypt 3 in August last year and while it's obviously...

    Any thoughts, anyone?

    I figured Das Boot would be a bit of a step up from Subway, while Pine and Mystery are both a bit of a step up from Keyhole/Birch. But I'm still looking out for a few more...

    I live in the UK, but am looking at heading to the US this summer to tackle a few more slot canyons with a friend that lives out in Cali. In the past we've done the following:

    Can't speak to those ones but in case it helps anyone:

    -Birch Hollow (7th Aug) - fair amount of mud, some water at the bottom of the chockstone rap
    -Egypt 3 (8th Aug) - not a hint of water...

    Thanks Tom. At the risk of sounding daft - what do you mean by double strand? If my first pic in this thread is single strand (ignoring the girth hitch pic) and the last pic with two loops round...

    Preferred single anchor setup

    Quick question for you all - when you have a single anchor, e.g. a tree, what's the preferred rigging setup?

    Is it a single loop, as described here >>...

    In terms of the choice of route - all those points make good sense, although I think Birch Hollow (or Benson Creek) will be the better bet for...
