There is insufficient beta for this canyon. Help us improve the Betabase... if you have details to contribute, please submit them to info@canyoncollective.com 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.

    First Keeper is completely dry and we conquered it via partner assists because two full potshots were not enough weight to ascend out. The only water in the canyon is located in the monster pothole, which is very deep right now. We bypassed it on the right.

    First keeper was not a big deal. Water was about 3 feet deep, and my super competent friends handled it with no problem.

    However, we weren't expecting the next keeper. There's a nice tight downclimb into it, and it's a full swimmer. My friend couldn't touch bottom, and the lip was 4-5 feet over his head. We solved this by sending a good climber up on the right side of the canyon and set up a top rope for the less confident climbers. After bypassing the pothole, we set up a simul-rap off the horn of a rock.

    I'd be curious to hear how other groups handled this obstacle!
