    Hello. I am in a group going into Buckskin Gulch March 29 of 2015, and down the Paria to Lee's Ferry.I was wondering if anyone with experience in Buckskin at this time of year could provide some advice:
    Are we better off in wetsuits, presumably bottoms or the farmer john type, or - heavyweight smartwool long underwear under water resistant quick drying nylon shell pants.

    I would recommend thermal underwear. First of all, it is important for girls. Secondly, it is a good heater. But that's up to you. You must rely on your body and your senses. I bought my thermal underwear from the lilylulu shop about which you can find more if you click here. And I want to say that the quality is excellent. They are very warm and they dry quickly if you wash them. And this is very important if you are going on a hike. But you still have to choose. Have a good rest! I hope my comment helped you.
