Was the RRFW update inaccurate from this May? I know in the past there was no dispute but their Diamond Down update stated:

The Hualapai Nation now sells camping permits for river runners who would like to camp on river left below Diamond Creek. Camping is only allowed at specific locations on tribal land and hiking away from the camping location is not allowed. The camping fee is $32.55 per person per night. For additional information contact the Hualapai Tribe River Running office at ( 928 ) 769-2219.

The take out is way better and cheaper, but the time on the water wasn't that great. So chalk up 1 vote for Diamond.
I just did the Grand and I 100% agree with this.

If I do it again, I'll pay the money and take out at Diamond.

Having said that, if I was with a group willing to float through the night, I would reconsider.

No diamond for me. That section of the canyon is the worst part of the trip yes... but the worst most obnoxious part of the best trip on earth is still pretty good.....

I TOTALLY agree with Brady. Just plan on taking out at PF and doing the night float. That way you have more fun rapids, more beautiful canyon, and you don't have to do 85 mi in 24 hours like we did. We knew that during monsoon DC could flash, but we were thinking, "What are the odds?!" Well, the odds were good enough. I was part of that BV breeder group - a good adventure and a good opportunity for lots of character building.

10-4! If you have to ask you probably should just stay home. Why pay the tribe? (bribe!)
