    I ran Paridiso on the 13th of April and was surprised to find it dry other than two pools. The first pool is after the pothole rappel and is knee to waist deep unless you jump out to a sandbar. Following that pool there is a keeper pothole that can be stemmed over, though two members of our group jumped in and it was a full swimmer for them until we pulled them out. On December 14th 2017, I replaced the first and last anchors in the canyon and was surprised to find those anchors still there and in use with the original webbing. I replaced it and was surprised by how little traffic this canyon gets. I was out in the dante's doing inferno in January of this year and our tracks were still well preserved there, so taken with the water levels of then and now, it might be reasonable to say that the area hasn't flashed since then.
