you havent heard of them for good reason- they're kind of epic in comparison to the standard options (rappelling the route, using the BO descent). Folks who are comfortable with Red Rock and its quirks may not find them to be that bad, but people who dont live here or frequent here often can easily find themselves hosed on these descents.

as for the anchors- i would not expect them to be any more than crappy old tat and old smc rings at best, as these descents are not used 1/10th as often as the ones noted above. if you choose this adventure, i'd bring at least 30', if not more, of webbing and cord to shore up the rap stations.

Do you happen to now if the anchors in these gullies are still in place? I'm heading up there soon but have never heard of these descent options? Jan 16, 2013
