    Looking for canyoneering partner in Septermber 2020 near Zion Utah

    Myself and buddy Andrew live in Chicago and have travelled to southern Utah to explore the canyons for the past 15 years and are hoping to do more technical slots in September 2020. We have completed many non-tech slots as well as semi-tech such as Subway, Black Hole, Keyhole, etc under the guidance of my father-in-law. He is not able to travel with us this year and we are looking for someone or a group that would allow us to tag along. We are in very good shape and have no problems with long hikes or canyoneering, just don't have 100% confidence in ourselves for proper anchoring on the rappels. We have all gear necessary for long rappels, cold swims, etc. If anyone is in the Zion area from 9/17-21, we will be applying for permits in the park.

    I have some tentative plans for September already and *may be able to have you guys tag-along.

    Just curious - Any specific canyons you are thinking of doing?

    I was hoping to get permits for Mystery, but if that doesn't happen, other options are Orderville, Echo, Fatman's MIsery, Pine Creek. That is only a rough idea, we are flexible and open minded to any canyon adventure
