This is the relisting of the proposed 2018 event. It is being rescheduled to 2019. Dates are always tentative until the event gets closer:
Back to Zion! And why not? The scenery, the slot canyons (the heat..) can only be missed for so long.
This is a -technical- trip involving exposed down climbing, rappelling, and long days crossing difficult terrain. Please arrive in shape, and work on the skills needed to do this safely. I will keep the group size at six or under to make getting permits more feasible.
Anyone beyond this core group of six is certainly welcome if you want to do more traditional touristing. Zion is within a days drive of many famous National Parks, including Grand Canyon, Arches, and Bryce.
Zion is usually hot! The canyons are cool, even cold, but the valley itself is hot even at night. We will be car camping. I generally fly into Vegas.
