Lacey’s First Descents

Lacey Anderson gives an Autobiography of her first descents:

All have been in Mexico and the majority have been multi-day expeditions. I have written some first descent articles for NRS Duct Tape Diaries http://community.nrs.com/duct-tape/author/laceyanderson/ and others can be found on my blog http://nocoolers.com/topics/first-descent/

I did two first descents before the age of 50:

*Agua Azul (State of Chiapas) – upper sections in rafts – mid-1990´s.
It took our team all-day and into the late evening/early morning to complete these waterfalls with rafts. It was a grueling hike out with rafting equipment; we were done around 2 in the morning. This was my first tantalizing taste of first descents!

*Rio Urique in Copper Canyon – 2002

I organized, lead and guided the first commercial descent of the Urique river in Copper Canyon Mexico.

All of the fun really began after I turned 50!
