There are two rappels in East Shill, 40ish feet followed by 90ish feet. John and I simul-rapped the 40 footer, which was his first in-canyon rappel. Then John hung from my harness on the 90 footer -and totally kept his cool. I'm very proud of him. It was a great experience for both of us.
At the top of the canyon we were fortunate to meet Meg from backcountry.com and Rob the owner of geartrade.com and co-owner of Este Pizza Co. (See those shameless plugs?). It was a real pleasure to share the canyon with them and spend some time with them afterwards. Thanks again for the molé, Rob!
