I'm a Canyoneer from northern New Mexico. I know Klaus and Alden electronically. I've wanted to get out and do some So Cal canyons and plan to be out in that area for canyons 2/21-23/14. It’s possible that some fellow New Mexicans may also come. I'm hoping to have Alden and some other So Cal Canyoneers join me (us) for a few days of canyons. I (we) have all the skills and gear necessary to descend these canyons, but I won’t do canyons alone and it's always nice to have folks along who are familiar with them.
The plan for this day is to do Bailey Canyon (beta at http://www.dankat.com/advents/bailey.htm). I spoke with Klaus and we’ll stay out of his group’s way, but this way he and I can meet in person. We'll meet at the same time and location.
I'll be staying in the Sierra Madre area.
Everyone will be responsible for his/her own safety and personal gear.
I will bring a 220' rope and a bit of cord, just in case that 110' rappel is a tad longer. I will also have 75' of webbing and several rapides.
We'll need a second 220' rope (or 110'+'ish rope and a pull cord). Everyone should always be carrying at least 30' of webbing and a few rapides.
