Bailey Canyon, 3A III

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.

    My bottom lip was the size of Gibraltar by Sunday evening! But the next morning it was almost back to normal :)

    So Sorry, have someone coming over to adopt the rescue Bunny. Just in time before my 2 carnivorous Cats get what they think is a giant Mouse for Dinner.

      In some circumstances, 'adopt' is a euphemism for 'stew.' If that is the case here, please save me some and I'll stop by on the way back from the canyon.

    Hi Brett, Question to clarify meeting time: You mentioned above that this group would meet at the same time and place as Klaus's group, but I believe his group is scheduled to meet at 7am and this one is at 8am. Thanks for organizing this.

      Klaus kindly changed his meeting time because the two groups were getting so large. They'll get out ahead of us and hopefully we'll all end about the same time. One of the reasons I'm coming out is to meet Klaus in person. And, I'm picking up some rope bags from him to take back for some us in NM.

    John changed his RSVP. He was bringing the 2nd rope. So, we need someone to bring a 2nd rope. Volunteers?

    Hi all:

    The time is drawing near. I'm excited to experience some new canyons and meet more people.

    I am still looking for someone to volunteer to bring a second rope.

    Just before coming out, I'll send an e-mail to all those attending with my cell phone number.

    I'll be renting a car at LAX. On a couple trips out there I've gotten a Kia Soul, a fun little car that can hold gear nicely. I'll probably ask for one of those.

    See you all soon.
