The trip report:  The restoration team cleaned up the area around the ladder. Approx 105 pieces of foreign matter was collected around the ladder area. The team then hiked to the Giants formation, approx halfway to the water barrier, and removed human placed mud from a number of formations and attempted to erase the wide elephant trail in the vicinity. A pathway was marked through the area to prevent the development of a wide elephant trail. The team then visited thunder falls and proceeded to exit the cave without incident.
