    I'll be in Escalante for work / play that week. Need canyon pals. Help a lady out. :happy:
    Would be down to do pretty much anything in the area. TBD.

    If you guys are down there and are able to provide a flow report of Calf Creek Falls, I'd appreciate it.

    I didn't know it wasn't permitted any longer. Is swimming still allowed???

    Pretty sure the ban went in place in 2016.....something about a rope left behind possibly? Assuming swimming is still allowed

    EDIT: Found the discussion over on Bob's Canyoning Forum about it. There is mention of going in from above where there are no signs and claiming ignorance and forgiveness, but where your own own moral compass falls on that situation is up to you

    04/22/18: I just phoned the BLM in Escalante and they confirmed that Calf Creek (entire drainage) remains closed to canyoneering.
