A good friend of mine ran Insomnia Canyon yesterday (July 2019) and his day was filled with cautionary tales and dangerous conditions. I was just glad to hear that he got down and out Ok. Insomnia Canyon has changed dramatically from prior years. The big winter runoff has left loads of debris in almost every pot and chamber making forward progress much slower and more difficult. X'd up log jams and moving piles, nothing real predictable in there. Both bolts on the big rappel station are no longer safe -- one is a slider and the other is a spinner. The car mat used for protecting ropes from the sharp edge is gone. Making things worse, the steep and narrow shoot leading to the precarious rappel station is loaded with unstable wood. He backed up the fragile 2-bolt anchor with loads of cord as best possible -- but this was by no means a solution, only a one time -- get us down, back it up -- sorta deal. Apparently, the webbing from the bolt station has captured debris during the big runoff and that stress has destroyed the strength of the bolt station. Once new bolts are placed, would chains and quick links reduce the stress on the anchor during runoff? Next group down should be prepared with a full scale plan and solution. I would like to hear what others think about the location of the current bolt station? As we know, these bolts lead to a sharp edge and plenty of core shots have been reported. I don't know if it is even possible to get bolts up higher, reducing the stress on the rappel line but then again -- reaching the current bolt station is already a long reach and a long tether. I would think getting new bolts located closer to the outter edge of the drop off would be beneficial -- but who wants to hang that close to make the placement? All of the awkward footing and available angles work against one another ... What we need is a 7 foot tall person with a drill to really fix this thing. Any volunteers? Insomnia Canyon is a dangerous place right now. Until the big rap station has been updated and re-drilled, should be avoided. Even after the repair, wood jams and difficult conditions will slow down unprepared groups.
