Yubao looked up into this canyon entry on our last trip up Ortega North... I've looked at the cut from down in the basin. I think there may be some potentials up in there... so:
This will be a class II Canyoneering hike... very off trail... thick bushwhacking through sharp sticky stuff! This may be no fun!!
3000' of Elevation gain.... 7-10 miles mostly off trail
This hike is not for beginners or whiners...
Meet at Trail head for "A" Trail at 8:45am... or down the street at the Firestation at 8:30am. Carpool from Las Cruces: 7:00am at KMart at Del Rey by I-25 and I-70.
