On March 19th, 2014, Tony and I did a lap through Purgatory Canyon. It was fun canyon with very sculpted walls (the photos do no justice). Knowing it was dry we headed through with minimal gear.

The final 110ft rappel was interesting. We rapped from a stone that was wedged into a crack on the floor of the canyon. Something a little new to us. The stone that the previous grouped used was no bigger than a baseball. I selected a much larger stone, simply to make myself feel better, and it worked just as well.

It was a great day with a great friend.

The 'clamshell rappel' has a good ring to it.

The vistas around the Dantes are stunning. 
If you look closely, I'm in the pothole far below.
