Twice a month I plan to go long... this will be one of those days.
The North Fork just might let us up and out...or not! Time to find out. Of course if it does... the fun might just be starting.
Exit descent could come from the Dog Cleft... yet that could be a mistake. If it cliffs out...well...could be many hours getting home! I plan to pack to bivy over... just in case.
Two gallons of fluid a must...and with Dog exit...will not be able to stash water.
Off trail...Class II Canyoneering...not for Beginners or sane folk.
Slow pace...very long day.
I plan to ride my bike out to the park...will not have phone service after 5am?
