  • The Hype

    This canyon is incredibly fun. It is a great canyon to hone all of your skills down climbing, rappelling, free rappelling, and interesting anchor problem solving.

    Getting There

    This canyon has easy access right off Highway 95 at Duckett Crossing (mile marker 60.9). Follow the road as it goes through the culvert under 95 and across White Canyon. The White Canyon crossing usually requires high clearance and 4 wheel drive. Follow Horse Tanks road 0.5 miles to a T and take the left fork for 1.1 miles to the Duckett Canyon Trailhead. Hike a short distance up the road, then a short distance cross-country NW to where you can easily walk into the canyon. The head of the canyon is located at N37 45.663 W110 15.866.

    The Canyon - Rating: 3 B II   Longest Rap: 40 feet   # of Raps: 4-5

    This is a technical canyon you will need full rappel gear and a hundred feet of rope. You will likely encounter water and will want neoprene socks, but wetsuits should only be necessary in cold weather.

    The canyon has 4-5 rappels up to 40 feet. You will also need to do some down-climbing, stemming, and partner assists to negotiate the canyon.

    The Exit

    Duckett drains into White Canyon at N37 45.549 W110 16.350. Turn left and hike south (upstream in White Canyon) about 0.4 miles to the first possible exit at N37 45.325 W110 16.396. Follow the small drainage, taking the path of least resistance to the rim. Continue west to Horse Tanks Road then North East up the road to your parked vehicle.

    Red Tape
