 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.

    The Maze is flowing and should be flowing for the next few days due to the amount of snow present in the upper drainage. We did the sneak route and found the three biggest rappels bolted. The rest of the shorter rappels are off natural anchors, with one that could be challenging to replace. Lots of cold water and swims, I was fine in a 5mm wet-suit though my wife got cold 7mm of neoprene over her core. The flow is fairly strong on the last rappel but not dangerously so. Make sure to eyeball the flow of the last rappel on the approach.

    Water levels are low, still a swimmer or two but most water is avoidable with a bit of effort. Check the anchors...found substantial fraying on a few drops due to extended webbing over edges.
