Yesterday, a group descended Wife 5 in Capitol Reef NP. The first rappel is 100ft, anchored from two bushes, and are the anchor described in BluuGnomes beta. Unfortunately Wife 5 is one of the more popular routes in the park, so those little bushes have seen some impact, but are still a sound anchor option. Behind those bushes is an absolutely lovely little arch (bridge) in the watercourse, that has started getting used frequently as a substitute or backup anchor for the bushes. Every time I have visited Wife 5 there has been webbing slung from the arch, and extended out 25ft to the edge. This webbing being there has been a frustration, as per the Superintendents Compendium 1.5(a)(8): Climbing/Canyoneering Is prohibited on any arch or natural bridge within the boundaries of Capitol Reef National Park. Back to yesterday, the group descending Wife 5 utilized the bright yellow webbing anchor slung around the arch, and this happened while someone was on rappel: The group removed the webbing, and used the bushes as an anchor, safely completing the canyon. Things to learn: -Wingate can lose up to 30% of its strength when wet. (It had rained the day prior, and drizzled while they were in canyon) -Back those anchors up with meat. -Please don’t rappel using illegal anchors. (The park is planning to update the compendium to better define arch and bridge dimensions, but the standard definition is a 3ft opening) -Be careful out there. Thoughts on how this could have been prevented, or what caused the failure? Thanks.
