A diamond creek takeout now costs about $1000 in tribe fees for a full trip. Spend that money for a few extra days and go to Pearce.

Only reason to takeout at diamond is uncontrollable time constraints. If you can at all get the extra few days, go to pearce. The helos and tourists will help break you back into society so that the culture shock in vegas doesn't give you a heart attack.

Night float for sure, we did last 56 miles in 24 hours. Amazing way to end the trip

Pearce while mead is low for sure. Diamond is too abrupt an end to the dream. Diamond to Pearce is 16 hrs at flow in the mid teens. Plus, the canyon below diamond is spectacular. Some nice splashies too.

Day float to Peirce. I don't do trips with people that need to get back to the office!

Did the night float under a 3/4 moon. My shift started at 2:30am, I never woke the next guy. Those hours were pure magic and I wouldn't do it any other way.
