Escalante Update

We ran Escalante today. I would say it is on the mid to high range of low. The fin at 57 was exposed, but had a roostertail forming over it. We ran everthing except rib-ripper and the falls. Everthing is clean, but there is debris and logs randomly throughout the section. Scout the major drops. We moved several river wide logs out of the river and up onto higher ground. There was a river wide below the falls that we moved, and a few scattered 2-4 foot pieces scattered between the falls and magnetic wall. Keep an eye on the boulder section in that area if the logs move and get jammed in that area. There is still snow visible up high at the putin, so more good flows could be coming. Pray for more snow, prelong the season.

Josh

This is going to create some serious havoc in my life, but I'm in. John and Co, what time are you planning on starting? I will probably not come down until that morning and may want to run it later. Alex, Chris what's your plans?

Joe Mank - I might be in to rally wit you. Thursday is going to be a late night in FC but... if it is really running (as in flowing over the fin) then I'm game. Gives me shout.
