North Fork of Iron Wash


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.

    we decided to make a deadman rappel at the 40 ft dryfall instead of finding a down climb but a down climb shouldnt be to hard to find the webbing may need to be extended to prevent the rope from getting stuck in the chockstone. water in the canyon is easily avoidable just rap around it when you get to the three large pools. the first main rappel in the canyon could be taken out and downclimed or put webbing on it to extend past the lip to make the retrieval of the rope much easier. the keeper at the moment is filled with 12/15 feet of sand i have no idea how long the sand will stay but i expect for a while. if empty you will have to climb high to a log jam 30 ish feet up (log looks old and sketchy but still useable) the exit is easy not to many loose stones. 3/5 stars
