thank you shane, for now making it all abundantly clear.
everyone in this community has treated you as a friend. even in the last 10 years, many canyons have been shared with you, i've been on...
except it happens. on this very forum. moderators have redirected links to commercial beta.
yeti, i can only speak to myself. but i don't see every thread posted in this forum. if you think i can help you, send me an email. often times someone will contact me via email when there is a...
levi got exactly what he asked for, which is an explanation of the picture he posted and a general area to concentrate his efforts. i connected with him off-site, told him the photo he posted is the...
yeti, this concept is really really really simple, you can justify it all you want. but if you are expecting help from someone on an obscure slot, all you have to do is ask nice. that's it. end of...
yeti, i'm sorry you are confusing bogley with a general representation of the canyoneering community. this is a very very small subset, and not indicative of the community at large. you said it...
hundreds? i doubt it. it's just not that great of a canyon. and it has a 300 foot rappel in it, so not very many people have the gear to pull it off. but yeah, a few of us have likely done it.
What are your objections to sharing these canyon projects publicly? If you already know they will yield high quality results, share the prospects, and the possible logistical issues involved. I'm...

did you not read the original letter or my response? you'll see no mention of rope grooves. or what you call "holy hanging gardens" being destroyed it says "plants were torn out." the rest of the...

Do you honestly look at that photo and think, "wow, rappelling probably destroys the vegetation there?" I drew in on the photo you linked where the rappel path actually is. You'll see near the top...

i agree about the "abuse" it seems clear this is a result of careless people leaving a rope behind.
my hope is this won't play out in other areas in GC. Deer Creek is very unique, in that it is...

And here is my response to the letter, as posted on the GCPBA board. Thanks for the private boaters for their current work to understand this issue more fully.
I tried to keep this brief, I...

More information today on the closure at Deer Creek Falls. I believe this will be one of the first issues tackled by the American Canyoneers board - please join, speak up and help fight for...

Thanks for the kind words everyone! We released some more footage on Monday, but I've been off the grid for a week, and didn't get this stuff posted before I left.
Check out some of the new...
do those 8.5's at STP fit you pretty well iceaxe? :lol8:
seriously though - savants are nice but they've had bundles of issues too. i preemptively aquaseal the hell out of 'em, and they are the...
don't be fooled. freeplaymusic is not free, unless you are part of an organization that has a current ASCAP, BMI, or SESAC license. it is not free for anything else.
i've used these on the last couple of grand canyon trips, and they are a bargain for sure. however, i think the quality control is a bit suspect (go figure, it's walmart!)
i've had one that split...

it was obvious when i talked to her on the phone she'd had a few calls already, and she wasn't sure the camp stove ban was actually true. i can't find it anywhere, on any press release or official...
06-13-2012, 10:48 AM
wow. i just called the kamas ranger office, and they confirmed the ban is universal on all flames.
she also said "call back tomorrow, we hope to have the ban lifted on camp stoves by the...
06-13-2012, 10:24 AM
no camp stoves? i've never heard of that restriction in my life... pretty ludicrous if true. more than likely that ranger is misinformed.
if true, there's gonna be a shitstorm over this.
