Canyoneering in Colorado with Dianne, John, Charly, Judy and Donna
Approaching the Quartzite Corridor
John rigs the second rappel
The first rappel
Coiling the rope after the second rappel
Down lots of slides and chutes
The third rappel
The Quartzite Corridor itself
The La Cappella waterfall
Very scenic. But this drop is very dangerous and technical.
The final drop.
A few downclimbs and swims at the bottom
Blue Moon Canyon. This is the Blue Moon Tunnel, and avalanches the winter before made it longer than usual
The Grotto. Avalanches dumped a lot of trees there over the winter. They also plowed over the trees we used for anchors...
The Inner Gorge
The tunnels from the previous year were gone. In this one's place was a new rappel, or a long bypass.
The Crystal Section
We couldn't downclimb this year due to rainy weather and slick rocks. So we traversed to a tree and rappelled.
The final rappel
