ESCALANTE UPDATE 3-31-19

Hey - just a heads up. Escalante is getting ready to go and it will probably go big this year. We were up there climbing this weekend and it was cold and we got snowed out today - but even with the cold temps the river is coming up and is getting muddy. There is a bunch of low to moderately high elevation snow just waiting to go. There was evidence that it has been up high enough to run recently. I'll bet with the higher temps coming that it will be runnable by next weekend. Keep your fingers crossed !


Tom

Good to know, thanks Tom, I've been wondering what's going on out there.

Had a friend who just ran it in a packraft this past week and took out yesterday, said it goes currently but it was rather bony.

Went up there yesterday (weds) in the afternoon. Only day i had all week with the time. It had been cloudy most of the day and as such there wasn't any melt going on. Bone zone. Only looked at the takeout gorge before leaving, because there wasn't enough water to even scrape down any of those drops.

Forecast is for high pressure and warm temps Friday, then cloudy again Sat. High pressure Sun/Mon, then cloudy Tues. Starting out as the dreaded 'trickle off'. Hopefully in a week or so we get into some extended high pressure to bring it up for real.

May take a look again on Monday if the forecast holds -- if interested ping me at mike.curiak at gmail.

Keep in mind that there are two Escalantes; one in S Utah, one S of Grand Junction.
My guess is that there is some confusion going on in this thread.

We should certainly clarify who is discussing what run? CO or UT?

I think I was the only "lost" one and assumed the Ut Escalante....I now realize everyone is talking about the Co Escalante.

Definitely Escalante Creek in Colorado.

A glance at the barometer gauges right now says it's in pretty solid. Likely to drop with inbound cold temps tonight, but it'll be back next week, and the week after...
