    We did Heaps this weekend with a fantastic group of six in 48 hours car to car, as planned -- a relatively casual romp. We hiked up to the West Rim on Friday afternoon. Saturday we did the entire canyon to the upclimb before the big drops (we wanted to see the drops in daylight). Sunday, out before noon - casual pace.

    Tippy top full. No pothole escapes. Used the aiders on a vertical log jam. The log soup room was very full and difficult for some (most). Re-did two anchors. All others in fine shape.

    The log soup section was particularly difficult. I was first in that part. The debris was thick enough to stop travel and just thin enough that you thought you could get on top but as you tried you just sank in. It took a long time to push through about 75 feet of the stuff. I found it a lot of work and entertaining. The entertainment ended when we lost the rope bag though! After some searching we finally found it, breathed a sigh of relief and pushed on.
