No Kidding is like no other North Wash canyon. Instead of skinny physical narrows, No Kidding is characterized by big drops, and potholes. Think "Squeeze" in the Swell, only much smaller in scale, and dryer.
The rather shallow canyon made it a less obvious target for early canyon descents, and it wasn't until Jason Pease posted of his solo adventure that the canyon really hit the public radar.
Needless to say, it's one of my personal favorite North Wash canyons, for no other reason than the skills required to safely descend it are so unique. Without proper skills, this canyon can be very difficult and dangerous. Almost all descents use sandtraps as anchors, because there are so few other options. This is not a canyon for beginners, but it is a great canyon to learn and apply sandtrap principles.
