ACA Leader/Guide Rendezvous: Egypt 1

View canyon rating for Egypt 1

The objective for this canyon was to go down a ways and then ascend back up all the rappels. It made the canyon quite fun as we had to think through all our moves in reverse.

Lots of pictures -

Inspecting and rigging the first rappel. Since this was more about practicing skills rather than exploring, we rigged several different spots, each a different way.

...and ascending back up.

Cody pretended to be stuck and so those who were still at the top had to haul him up.

Some acting
And he's up!

Our final obstacle on the way back up was to haul one of our group up over a free hang. With a good number of haulers and favorable geometry, it was an easy task.
