    Gonna be doing water canyon this coming Friday and was wondering how much water is currently in the canyon and how deep? Thanks for any info for that canyon. After that we are headed to the roost. Gonna do chambers, alcatraz, and lost park. Any recent conditions on any of those would be appreciated :)

    Thanks!!!!!!

    Hi Bosco - Water canyon was wet with a couple of swims. Nothing more then 10 feet. The rest of it was less then waist deep. We used wetsuits and it was perfect. The roost was in really good condition road wise. We only ended up doing Alcatraz and chambers. Alcatraz has a lot of water. It was hot out there which saved me as we went into Alcatraz with no wetsuits. It is mostly knee or thigh deep. A few spots get to waist deep. The last water spot is up to your neck though :) Here are links to pics and videos from the trip.
