Unseasonably cold, fairly high water. I chose not to wear a wetsuit -- big mistake. I had a 0.5 mm surfer's shortsleeve shirt, whose only virtue was in being black. The NPS later told us the water was 45F. Coming back through the Narrows, with several swims, was utter agony.
We went UP canyon as far as we could, past the first falls, and then into a jumbled group of boulders where the timid in the group overpowered the bold, and we turned around. Should do it all as is described here.
I did Orderville Canyon with the WMC. It ended up taking all day getting through the obstacles with our large group. The water was pretty cold and we didn’t have wetsuits. There were trees and other debris in all of the pools from a recent storm. It was a fun and memorable hike.
