My favorite Chris film too. the ledges on the last climb out would have made me nervous.May 26, 2017 at 5:31 pm #3470024Jeffs ElevenBPL Member
That canyon looks fun. 0 people/ 4 days sounds nice. Were there old paths and trails, or were the ledges and stuff all route finding?May 27, 2017 at 8:30 am #3470106HkNewmanBPL Member

Great report. Caught both the beauty and harshness of the desert.May 28, 2017 at 2:32 am #3470199chris smeadBPL Member

Jeffs Eleven: The trails were intermittent and pretty hard to follow. The first few miles had an obvious trail, but that broke up once we dropped into Knowles canyon. After that it was hit or miss. There were trails along the Colorado but they were misleading, hence the bushwhacking. The cliffs were certainly challenging, and we had to back track here and there but it wasn’t too bad once you got over the exposure. Luckily, I just had to follow Ryan and film stuff, so my job was easy. ;)
