Skirting around the first optional rappel in Bad Canyon
Looking down from where the canyon drops at rap #3. Present anchor is another 50 feet down on canyon left. We'll rap directly from this location in the photo next time (<200 ft).
Here's the anchor I couldn't find last time I was in the canyon. Ended up using a bush. This time even in daylight I almost didn't see the piton.
Here's the bush I used a couple weeks ago. For some reason I still felt better about using the bush this time instead of the piton.
