High Spur

Robbers Roost beta posted by Jeremy Freeman


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.

    Group Size:

    3 people

    Total Time:

    1 hour 6.5 hours

    Top third of the canyon was dusty and dry but at the first drop there was a large neck deep pool with knee deep mud on the far side. The middle exit was marked by a large carin (canyon right). Beyond that point the mud was ankle to knee deep in the slots with a few waist deep pools full of putrid water. Up climbing would be nearly impossible so once you pass the middle exit make sure your group is prepared for the final 80' rap that had a few large boulders to use as anchors. We did not set up a shuttle so the 6.25 hours includes the 2.5 mile road walk back to the TH. TR can be found here.
