Ascent Trip ReportThis required almost bushwhacking nearly a mile down into eastern side of the gorge. There were several amazing spots down here including an epic view of the "Amphitheater". We ate a snack on the sunny hillside with a sheer drop ~1000 ft to the river below. There was a cool breeze and could barely hear the rushing water of the river below. This is rewarding area, but it can be dangerous, so use the utmost caution.
