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.

    Went through Quandry direct. Partner assisted through all but the big keeper, used 2 potshots on the big keeper. Largest pothole was only knee deep. No need for wetsuits. Used the east route out. Very well marked with cairns all the way up. East route has a very sketchy move. Nice day

    We did quandary direct from the top and found the canyon mostly dry with a few pools waist deep and below. No wet-suit needed at this time. The first pothole was very deep and required a few full potshots thrown to make ascending out possible. Potshots were needed a few other times in the canyon as well. We used the sandtrap three different times in the canyon and it helped us significantly because of the nearly dry conditions. Not a good canyon to do on a hot day, we were roasting with a high of 78 degrees so I can't imagine doing the canyon in warmer weather.
