Class C Conditions in Boundary Canyon

An all-ZAC crew descended Boundary Canyon last Thursday, finding conditions much wetter (and louder) than expected. The heavy snowpack and high summer precipitation of 2010 continues to keep things cool, watery, and exciting on the Kolob plateau. While high water conditions keep canyoneers out of Kolob Canyon, it also creates opportunities to see other canyons in prime conditions. While it’s typically a rare treat to descend Boundary with decent flow, it looks like conditions have been fairly wet there on a consistent basis this summer.

Thanks to Tom for posting the trip report on his Latest Rave (check it out for all the photos and details), and to Talia, Sarah, Bailey, and Magda for adding beauty and comraderie to Tom’s shots. I can only hope I’m out in the canyons with four adventurous women when I’m Tom’s age!
