    Cold!! Full. The first two potholes are not as cold as the last ones but brrr, especially as you sit around and wait for people to rap and downclimb, etc. Anchors in good condition. We had dry suits just to err on safety with our group of 6. Long corridor swimming (same how it was as of last October just after the cathedral rap).

    Also, for other Zion conditions: Spry, anchors great, and every rappel is flowing (garden hose strength) except 2nd to last. No wetsuit needed despite the garden hose flow. In the mandatory water section, it was waist deep if you can jump a foot or two from the bottom of the downclimb.

    And we hiked up to Upper Emerald Pools and Heaps is still is flowing (maybe 5 garden hose strength?)

    Hope that helps.
