Although very steep and filled with talus in spots we managed to get down to the arroyo with little trouble. From the head of the arroyo we were able to link up with the section we've explored before, having to bushwhack around obstacles only a few times.
The going was easy then, and we followed the semi-wide arroyo north all the way down to the Tellbrook, which we took to the intersection with LDR; and then it was the usual slog up the steep incline to the upper flatland.
