As with all beta, use the information on this page with caution. Obstacles may change or may be dependent on conditions, as well as group skills and comfort levels. Rap counts may increase if downclimbs get rigged as rappels, anchors may get altered or re-rigged, and conditions will vary. Always be prepared for the unexpected (mental, or physical challenges, or gear needs that you did not anticipate), consider your options, and look for the safest alternative for your group to descend the canyon.

    We did woody main fork in combo with the pothole fork. At 6 feet tall, the water came up to my chest on the long keeper pothole in the main fork and the largest keeper in the pothole fork. The largest keeper in the pothole fork is currently quite difficult to escape with a huge bag toss or awkward partner assist in deep water.

    Woody is in full keeper mode right now, with very low water conditions. Two knee deep pools are encountered in the canyon with one swimmer. The swimmer is in the monster pothole which is currently at dangerous levels. We attempted the 25-30ft potshot toss across it many times and only managed to get one potshot to land on the rim. We had to climb around the monster pothole which is pretty sketchy, so bring a solid climber with you if you plan on doing Woody anytime soon.
