“Aaron Mulkey continues his exploration of Lake Powell’s nearly 2000 miles of shoreline for Deep Water Dry Tooling. This time he brings partners Josh Wagner
and Laura Chimielewski who are blown away at how good the climbing is.

“I want everyone to know, the walls being climbed are typically under water and the rock is very weak sandstone since it’s usually under water. When the
damn was built it filled up over 2000 miles of canyon walls with water. Because these walls are typically underwater the algae growth on the surface
of the rock makes it nearly impossible to climb with your hands. Each time these walls go under water they shed rock and grow more algae. The rock
above water line is much better and we do not climb on those with tools.”
