    The Confluence of Pine Creek and the Virgin River on Saturday, 9/27. The Virgin River went from 85 cfs to over 5,000 cfs in a few hours.

    Ram and Mountaineer like this.

    Had not seen anyone up at the bolts 2 raps before the last one in a long while. Can I assume the Rabbit Hole was closed with debris again? Is it still closed? Interesting color of water. pretty good crowd up high and looked like they downclimbed the first rap?
    Nice

    For the last couple of years, it has been an optional downclimb, or can climb around and rap off the glue-in bolt. Choice.

    I'm not sure it has ever been inaccessible, as the route is entirely on the large rocks, rather than on the temporary wood debris.

    Well it is possible that I just failed to glean a way up top, thus thought it was unreachable on occasion. Will look harder next time. Thanks
