Pineman, you have a PM and thanks for sharing! That sounds like a very intense hike from everything I've been able to find about it. A couple friends of mine are also going to be working out there and they want to do some fly fishing so I think I'm going to try to convince them that climbing down into the canyon is really worth it
. I'm all about working hard to get to fishing. I was in Arizona last year and hiked into some really steep canyons solo (probably wasn't a good idea in retrospect
) so the Gunnison sounds like a great challenge.
