Thanks for all the great info and insight on this hike.I will be taking a group of Scouts down in August and hoping for the best with the heat (it was our only option this year). First time to CG. We will have 2-3 nights we can spend in the canyon so looking for some ideas on best route, camp locations, etc. One thing to keep in mind with any recommendations is one of my Scouts does not have use of his arms so something like the sneaker route would be out for us. Not sure if crack in the wall would be possible for an entry/exit route or not but would appreciate your insight.Thanks!
We are a fairly fit family with 2 kids (11 and 13) and moderate hiking experience. Is this a plausible route for a day hike I get the sense that descending via the crack and ascending via the sneaker route is less intimidating than vice versa. Thanks!
The process of designing a blade starts with the raw material. All of our reviewed knives have blades made of some variety of steel. Steel is a metal made mainly of iron. The iron is mixed (\"alloyed\") with small amounts of carbon and often other elements, with endless possible variations. Steel for a knife must be hard enough to resist the abrasion and deflection of the material it is cutting. However, it must also be soft enough to deflect (rather than break or crack) at least slightly in the face of significant forces and to respond to commonly available sharpening methods. Too hard, and the brittle steel would be nearly impossible to sharpen. Too soft, and the steel will lose its edge rapidly. It must resist corrosion in the face of a wide array of commonly encountered substances, and water alone is a common corrosive agent that must be protected against.
The Dash 3.5 is designed with the same process as military cargo cases and industrial tanks so it is tough. Toss it in the back of the truck without a care it will crack or break. The Polyethylene is not only strong but safe. Our PE is BPA-free and FDA approved for contact with edibles.
The narrows run for nearly 15 miles, with only one spot where people generally exit, if needed. Near the middle of the narrows, the slot is not as deep, about 100 feet, and a crack runs up to the north rim. Petroglyphs on the north rim, about 20 feet up, indicate you are about to the Middle Exit. Experienced hikers can scramble up, while others may need a rope, this crack to get out of the canyon if it looks like flood potential is developing. 153554b96e
