Got to thinking, my first trip down the Hermit was in 1965. Couple of friends and I were hiking down in February, when were passed by the NAU hiking club, being lead by Dr. Harvey Butchart, whom I had taken a class from. He was a fount of knowledge and had been the first person to walk the entire park length, although in bits and pieces. Good person and every time I think about the Canyon I remember him and his exploits.
What an experience!

Len…last time down to Hermit’s Rest, there was an overhang with two old iron beds with springs there. What are the camping options now? If you are talking about the switchbacks going up the Redwall just about a mile from the camp, that is Cathedral Stairs, one bear of a climb.

I don't remember beds.
