    Cable, Quandary and The Squeeze can all hold a lot of water, but I'm guessing they are pretty low right now seeing as how we haven't gotten any precip for several weeks.

    What he said but also the water that is there is likely pretty skunky, too.

    Five Mile in Capitol Reef usually holds a lot of water

    The approach is long and dry but if you do it early in the morning its not bad. I've done it in hot weather which allows you to skip the wetsuit if you are warm blooded.

    The squeeze still has some water, or at least it did 3 weeks ago. Not a lot of swimming, but enough to stay cool.

    Cable is almost bone dry. The only place we ran into water was at the hole with the window looking down into it. We did cable about a week and a half ago, so I suspect conditions haven't changed a whole lot since then.

    I was at hidden splendor last week and the muddy creek was not flowing. Its a stinky, muddy, bug infested set a puddles. I would avoid the Grand Gorge.

    What about the flowing streams in Escalante like Calf Creek and Death Hollow?

    I've hike Calf Creek but some folks do the full meal deal from top to bottom. We hiked Calf Creek the 24th of July so it was hot and swimming was nice.

    no RC if he made a promise will killhimself before reveal it.
    he is like a thumb!!!
    you know that he knows more stuff but he keep them secrets

    he usually publish only what he find himself or already well known place
    he will not reveal pleiadis.

    please

    Meh, I'll wait till you put it up, then put it up a day or two later... You'd be surprised at what OutdoorZen has waiting to see the light of day.... Not even the Italian has seen the secret scrolls buried in my basement...

    One of these days I'd like to sit you down and pick your brain on how to find cool routes. Every time I find a drainage that looks promising, it always turns out to be a dusty wash.

    Your a regular partner of Ice aren't you? There's yer FIRST problem... Ice usually gets his canyons second hand these days. Finding them without any prior knowledge is a bit of an art, and more challenging.

    We should try and do a trip sometime. I have the next few weekends planned, but maybe later in the summer or fall.

    I have a couple sweet lines.... which one you talking about?

    1. The only way three guys can keep a secret is if two of them are dead.

    2. The life of a secret canyon is measured in dog years.

    3. Canyoneers will trade their mother for good beta

    As for Pleiadis.... you all are free to post anything you wish about the canyon. I don't have a dog entered in this race at the moment.

    Finding canyons from scratch is a lot of hard (but fun) work. And I have spent my fair share of time in the barrel....

    Now I'll let you in on a big secret. I have found that putting together a network of knowledgeable and like minded canyoneers is the best way to gather large amounts of good beta quickly. A normal guy working solo might uncover 2 or 3 new canyons in one year if he is extremely lucky. A group of 10 can beta 50 canyons by sharing knowledge and spreading the work load. I learned, modified and adopted this method after talking with a couple of Steve Allen's friends. So it really comes down to what are you looking for.... a fun time unlocking a new route, or assembling a large amount of quality beta in the most efficient manner possible?
