    We were told we were only the third group to ever go through (second group was day before); amount of sun weathering means it was Swaney's, which means it's bomb enough for us.

    It was during the DV Awesomeness winter event that everyone bailed on because of rain. Meta on the file says February 19th.
    Amazing canyon, surreal, tens of thousands of fossils in the walls and on the canyon floor. And even a few live ones.

    One in the wall, one that fell out the wall, and one walking across his bygone ancestor.

    I was part of the group that went through the day before you, I was just checking to make sure. Its a great canyon, we even had some flow (very minor) when we did it. That was probably my favorite trip to DV (I have a whopping total of 3 trips).
