On May 3, 2013, Tracy and I met our friends, Megan and Jason to do an overnighter in

Robber's Roost Canyon.  Tracy and I camped near the San Rafael Swell on Friday night, and

then we met Megan and Jason in Hanksville on Saturday morning.  Form there we drove out to

the Angel Point Trailhead on the west side of the Dirty Devil River.  We made the descent down

towards the Dirty Devil without any problems.  We decided to make the short little drop near

the river, which required lowering our packs and handing their son down the short drop.  But

the hike down was uneventful, and once at the bottom we crossed the Dirty Devil and headed

up river towards Robber's Roost.

After getting into the canyon, we headed up canyon until the confluence with the South Fork.

At the South Fork, the sun, heat, and sand had given us all we felt like dealing with, so we

made camp across from the South Fork.  Jason and I went further up canyon to the small

spring I had found a few weeks earlier.  It wasn't until we were getting close and I couldn't hear

the water running that it occurred to me that the spring might have dried up, but luckily there

was still a trickle coming out of the rock.  It took awhile, but we were able to get our bottles

filled.  After getting back to camp, I saw some nice rock art on the canyon wall.  That was cool

because it was the first time I had ever found rock art that I didn't know was there ahead of

time.  I then walked up a small side canyon next to our camp that I remembered Kelsey had

said was a route out of the canyon.  I found a trail, but the trail eventually hit a dry fall that I

couldn't understand how to get up.  The next day I talked to a guy who had climbed out of it,

and he said that it wasn't as bad as it looked.

The next day we hiked out and just had a nice trip.  While I hadn't wanted to do Robber's Roost

again because of the cow dung, it was about the only place we could meet our friends that time

of year for an overnighter.  We had a good hike, made better by spending a weekend with

good friends.
