Eaton Canyon again

  • Sep 7, 2013 · 8:00 AM

This is not a guided trip or a beginner canyon. You are responsible for your own safety.

I am taking 3 of my friends to Eaton canyon (3B IV). If you don't mind joining a slow group, you are welcome to join. I've done Eaton Canyon twice this summer.

Requirements
1) You must have taken Klaus's course
2) OR you should have done some canyon with me
3) OR must get a recommendation from Klaus

Here is a video : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mBpcuxjaZ4I

Beta
8 Mile/ 2130' hike in
3B IV Rated, 5 to 8 rappels plus down climbing, jumps, slides, swims, etc
Beta: www.dankat.com/advents/loweat.htm
Lots of swimming!

Gear:
Everyone will need their personal canyoneering gear.
Bring your ropes n' stuff and we'll sort it out at the trail head.

      It was good fun! I'll come with better shoes next time :)

    There are some bush wacking involved : long pants and long sleeve tops will be good for the approach section.

    The approach is steep 3.5 mile hike with a total gain of 1800 ft.
    It will take us 1.5 - 2 hours. After this a 30 minutes bushwhacking section that basically leads us down to the canyon bed.

    It is 2 miles in the canyon. The rappels will be fairly easy at this point of time as there is very less water flow.

    Hi Carol,
    I don't see any training or experience mentioned in your profile. You may want to Klaus' classes before hitting an actual canyon.

      Hi Gokul: This just means I had not updated my profile correctly! I just took Klaus' 3-day basic technical canyoneering class this past Labor Day weekend. Please let me know if this does not sound like an okay level of experience for this outing. I'm trying to get in some good practice & reinforcement and I /think/ this looks like an appropriate trip -- thanks.

      If you had taken Klaus' class, you will be good to join.
      Please update your profile. That will help other event heads as well.

    I will bring in 200' of 9.0 and 120' of 8.3 ropes.
    Anyone else bringing ropes?

    September 4, 2013

    • Gokul R.

      It will be nice if we have a third rope as backup. Anyone?

      September 5, 2013

    • John G.

      I'll bring a 200 footer in a bag.

    Has anyone run this recently? I imagine the water levels have to be getting pretty low.
