Our hikes are of intermediate to advanced difficulty.
For example going up canyons with and without marked trails, extensive rock scrambling and down climbing often with exposure and with significant elevation gain. We will venture far into remote areas and canyons with geological interest as well as canyons of historical value . Many areas are of significant paleontological and archeological importance and fragility. Only those who will respect and protect them need apply. Gps tracks and/or identifying photos of these areas are not permitted to be posted on the internet or distributed to the public when requested by the organizers. Violation of this policy will result in removal from the group.
Note: we will only consider those with desert hiking experience. This is primarily a serious exploration group not a social club. This meetup is for adults only. Minors are not permitted. All hike attendees must be members of this meetup and be signed up for the hike. No crashers or plus ones.
Please provide pertinent information about your hiking abilities and/or experience in the question section.
For safety reasons a real recognizable photo of yourself is required for membership
