 WARNING:

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.

    There is no real trail on the approach or exit of the canyon. GPS was extremely helpful. The first rap is anchored with a couple of deadmans that had been buried. They appeared pretty bomber and the webbing appeared to be in good shape. It's about 180-190 feet down a steep hill of slickrock with several small potholes and small verticals on the way down. Second rap is short, about 50 feet or so off a small tree on the LDC side. It's avoidable by some bushwhacking, but we rapped. There's some stemming if you don't want to get wet, as there was some standing water after the second rap. There is a pothole at the end that could be a keeper but was stemmable without assistance for the taller members of our group. It's beautiful. The exit is quite a hike. I found the beta from bluugnome accurate and useful. This canyon would have been a lot faster, but we had a large group, some beginners, and some kids. Hope this helps.
