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.

    Farnsworth is a really short narrows through the San Rafael Reef. It is completely flat except for a one foot step. It is about 200 yards long, and is a super great canyon for little kids.

    A HCV vehicle can drive almost to the mouth of the canyon, but those with passenger cars will likely end up walking .25 miles to get to it.

    Hike up the slot. When you get to the open section, enjoy the view, take in the sights, and then head down.

    There are three arches in the general area, look in Michael Kelsey's San Rafael Swell guide for more info on these.
