    Hi,

    It was suggested to me that I reach out to this group for some potential up-to-date beta.

    Has anyone been in Davis Gulch recently? I'm heading down there in 2 weeks to hit the slot, then packraft up to fiftymile. Is there any swimming in Davis right now? I'm trying to decide if I need to take a wet or dry suit this time of year into that canyon.

    Any additional beta on this slot is helpful. I've been utilizing the web and Kelsey's book for beta thus far.

    Thanks for any info!

    -Ryan

    We plan on doing the slot, yes. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and some beta... and that funny anecdote. I can't imagine not wearing one

    What are your thoughts on a dry suit in there? I'm debating whether or not I want to carry the weight for the next day or two after I'm done with it.

    Escalante just got snow last night, it had started melting by noon, but expect cold and wet.
