CLASSIC & FALL CREEK CANYONS 3AIII

http://www.dankat.com/advents/fallcr.htm

The Blurb:  Classic Canyon and Fall Creek Canyon are both located in the Big Tujunga section of the San Gabriel Mountains.  Together these canyons are a 6 mile 3A/BIII trip requiring rappelling (possibly in cold falling water), pool and river wading, down climbing, and scrambling. They require 6-8 hours to complete. About 7 raps:  (Classic) 25ft, 40ft, 160ft(?), (Fall)  25ft, 35ft, 20ft, 70ft.

  • Hiking time: 6-8 hours
  • Estimated hiking distance: 6 miles
  • Elevation gain: 1100'
  • Difficulties:  7 Rappels to 160'
  • ACA Rating: 3A/BIII
  • Wet-ish ... no wetsuits needed; No Car Shuttle

NOTE: Since this is not a guided trip and because canyoneering is a team sport where every member should be able to rappel well, inspect anchors, build new anchors, rig for all contingencies, manage ropes efficiently and contribute in every aspect of the adventure, anyone who's profile doesn't reflect the appropriate training or sufficient experience will not be allowed to participate.

Group gear:
2X 200' Rope
2X 120' Rope
Webbing & Rapides
First Aid Kit

    Klaus, I would like to get one of the rope bags from you if you have any left. I need something that will hold a 200' C-IV.

    I'm on my way, but I am getting out of work a little later than I expected and who knows how traffic will be.

    Kevin, if I back out can you make this? We have an extremely sick steer at the sanctuary and I would feel better backing out if I knew someone can make it in my place.

      don't worry about it Kim .. do what you need to do! K-

      March 27

    • Kim "Kowhugger" K.

      Thanks Klaus! Going to try to make it. I'll be on call through the night should they check on him and need help--we got some heavy duty antibiotics into him and the pain meds are next when he calms down. Just thought I'd give Kevin a chance if he could make it for sure. If I don't hear from him prior to midnight, I'll assume he's not able and will do my best to be there. Hope to see you tomorrow.

    Alrighty Folks! You have homework! Since this is a team sport and everyone should be able to tackle ANY aspect of this adventure, here's a surprise: 1) READ THE BETA and LOOK AT THE MAP! 2) BRING THE BETA & MAP! 3) KNOW WHAT ROPE LENGTHS SHOULD BE BROUGHT INTO THE CANYON! 4) BE ABLE TO GET US TO THE DROP-IN TO EACH CANYON. Somebody will be chosen at random to handle each of the tasks required to descend this canyon (navigation, gear check, anchor inspection, anchor building, rigging, safety, etc). If you didn't read the beta, don't come! If you don't bring the beta, you won't be joining us in the canyon. If you can't get us to the parking area and drop-in point, you may be turned-away for not being prepared. You are not being carried through this canyon ... be prepared to be a contributing member of this adventure!! Woohoo!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
