Sunday, April 17 2005, trip report:
Escalante creek rose 6-8" from Saturday. The fin at 57 was completely under water and no longer spraying a roost. The sieve at Leap of faith was jammed up with wood and totally good to go. The hole below 57 Chevy is stompin and the Magnetic Wall's is sketch at this flow.
In speaking for our group, we found this to be a perfect level for the upper section. Fast but not real pushy, chocolate milk water, and super clean. Lots of logs floating by as the water keeps on rising.
We took out just above the lower gorge so can't comment on that section. Did hear some scary carnage stories from Sunday though, and really glad no one got hurt.
Get on this gem while you can... it's gooood
