Fabulous Fun. White Canyon is a tremendous Cedar Mesa canyon and that would be just fine. But then it narrows and deeps. You climb into the bowels of the earth, and are confronted with a pool that winds around a corner and out of sight. The water is very cold. You remember walking through the 100 degree heat and being very warm, but it does you little good now. You grab your pack and plunge into the pool, swimming around the corner, then another corner, then another corner. The frigid water spurs you on. Ahead is sunlight and gravel. You pull out of the pool and turn your pack upside down. Yeah!
The Black Hole offers one of the longest and coolest swims of the Colorado Plateau. A rope might be helpful to aid the weakest members of the party, but with a little hunting around, non-rappelling descents can be made at all the obstacles. The exit requires paying attention, and a little bit of route finding, but is otherwise straight-forward.
