There is insufficient beta for this canyon. Help us improve the Betabase... if you have details to contribute, please submit them to and you will be credited.

As with all beta, use the information on this page with caution. Obstacles may change or may be dependent on conditions, as well as group skills and comfort levels. Rap counts may increase if downclimbs get rigged as rappels, anchors may get altered or re-rigged, and conditions will vary. Always be prepared for the unexpected (mental, or physical challenges, or gear needs that you did not anticipate), consider your options, and look for the safest alternative for your group to descend the canyon.

    I just spoke with a couple who descended DH in it's entirety. They reported many long, cold swims in the upper narrows above the Right Fork. I personally descended from below this to the BMT a week ago and encountered half a dozen mandatory swims; all but two were brief and wouldn't necessarily require neoprene in summer temperatures. Below the BMT there is no mandatory swimming, just deep wading in a few beaver ponds.
