That was an HP section, so just follow a compass heading. Unfortunately a fence blocked our path just over the hill, so we had to cut it out (that part of the route, not the fence). In the prerunning we get to see all kinds of cool and crazy stuff that gets cut out of the final route due to one problem or another. So, the preruns are actually more of an adventure and often more fun than running the route after it's all completed.

It's not a good surprise. But when I find something that's a pain in the ass, I try to find more of it! Some of the washes turn into rocky hell, while others are beautiful smooth flat sand. This one was easy getting into and hard to get out of. When you go down a wash that feeds into the Grand Canyon, the walls get higher and steeper the further down you go.
