    Well, let's just say they didn't get the billing they deserved. I can tell you like them too, Glen.

    Ken,
    Is that descent gully day packable or a hard scramble? I didn't pay much attention as we got water at the pipe. Looked to me (what part I saw) it would be a good scramble.

    I've never been down it Glen, but I've seen pictures showing that there is a drop of 10 or 12 feet at the bottom. folks were using rope, but someone more agile than me might be able to pressure side to side down it. I'd probably get all the bark skinned off me!
