TR: Bluejohn Canyon (now Little Blue John)

  1. One thing I find confusing is that Kelsey's and Shan's "Little Bluejohn" Canyons are completely different. Any reason or logic behind the fact that two different canyons in the same system have the same name? I find it confusing.

    I just looked at Kelsey's hand drawn map and see no mention of "Little Blue John". Where is his Little Blue?

    I got the name of "Little Blue John" for the side door entrance from the guys who first gave me beta on the system. The side door entrance was known as Little Blue John long before Kelsey or I came along.

    I didn't realize there were two canyons with the same name? What canyon does Kelsey refer to as "Little Bluejohn"?

  4. If you look at the Bluejohn map in Kelseys boo, it is the eastern most fork of the system. See the map link below:

    It is a seperate canyon, so when ever someone ask about "Little Blue John" I am confused about which one they are talking about.

    <<I got the name of "Little Blue John" for the side door entrance from the guys who first gave me beta on the system.

    I just read Kelsey's beta and I think Scott is smoking crack.... or he is referring to Kelsey's "Little East Fork".

    Oh sorry, you are right. Never mind. I was spewing stuff from memory. Kelsey does call it the Little East Fork in the book. Doh!

    See what happens when I haven't done a canyon in over a week. Luckily, we have a nice one planned for this weekend. Can't wait.
