Going to Escalante next week with a decent sized group including kids from 10-15, a couple of relatively new but athletic adults, myself and an adult that has led some class 3 canyons. Almost everyone on the trip has done at least one class 4 canyon with some stemming, potholes, challenging anchors etc, but I'm the only one who has ever really led one or done a lot of them. Temps are 70s high and 30s low. We'll have 3-4 days to do canyons and/or hikes. I've done Kaleidoscope/Choprock, at least two variations of Neon, Egypt 2, Egypt 3, Ringtail, Peekaboo, and Spooky in the area. I have (or have access to) all needed gear. We won't be backpacking. What do you recommend for routes and cold protection? My initial thoughts are one casual day doing Peekaboo and Spooky (there are kids on the trip younger than 10 too but they'd be with a sitter for any more serious canyons than these.) Also considering an easier day in Egypt. Down 2 and up 3, or perhaps 1 and/or 1.5. Then a long day out to do Neon, either the shortest possible route or perhaps the second entrance. Maybe could add on Ringtail, but probably not given the approach, temperatures, and long hike back to the car. Any other great options I'm overlooking? What are your thoughts on Egypt 1 vs 1.5 vs 2/3? Thoughts on Sandslide Canyon? Any recent condition reports for any of these? How much water can those 4 Egypt canyons hold? Everything has been so dry this Fall so far and no rain predicted between now and then that I'm assuming the only one of those that should have significant water will be Neon. I've only ever done the Fence Canyon approach down to and up from the river. Is it worth trying to figure out a better way down there to do "just Neon"? Trip Report Coming!
