    Planning to do West, or West and East too? East is harder than Choprock. Great area. How you doing the approach? Plan the canyons down river too? R

    Just doing west fork.  Access is about a mile upstream, halfway between ringtail and baker.  We will be trying out the little "baker slots" as well, probably the west or the middle.  Anyone been there, done that?  Are you coming in from Early Weed Bench?  Anyone know how the road is?  Accessable for 2wd?

    We are in West a few days before you. We will access the canyon the same way you will. Haven't been to the Little Bakers. Hear nice things about them. Also hear the slot sections are short and not sustained. We will travel from Egypt, as part of a 5 day trip that includes canyons up river. Can't speak to how Early Weed road is this year, but on an average year, it is on the rough side, with areas of sand too. I wouldn't go in with 2wd, but I'm sure others have?
