This eTrail is a detailed description of an adventurous loop through the Grand Canyon backcountry. Here is an excerpt from this eTrail's route description. "Once we were in the bed, the going became quite difficult. Many room-size rocks blocked the way, and ingenuity was required to find a way around and through them. The only major obstacle came in the middle of the Hermit where a substantial pour-off blocked the way. We bypassed it by going up to the right (east) and contouring north to a descent. There is a more direct bypass down a small ledge on the right. But there isn’t always room for a person with a pack on so it is quite a struggle. I have come up that way and Mike went down that way, but I find the up-and-over technique less intimidating. The wall-to-wall collection of big blocks thinned out after the bypass, and it was a relatively straight shot to the confluence of Tatahatso Wash and Lechee Wash. We got to this junction in mid-afternoon and, since there was water and since one of our party was a very tired puppy, we decided to camp on the pleasant Supai ledges we found there."
