Set among soaring Wingate walls under a sky-scape of white capped Navajo sandstone domes, the three east forks of Shinob provide some of the best scenery in the park. Most forks can easily be done in a half day, providing the opportunity to combine canyons and hikes, and tailor the day’s adventure. Each fork has a distinctly different flavor with opportunity for the canyoneer to practice a variety of skill sets. Drop into the southernmost fork, Nighthawk, to practice partner assists, captures, bag drags, retrievable anchors and other techniques for navigating a canyon with numerous short shallow pothole drops. Top off the experience in Nighthawk with an awkward start rappel where the anchor must be extended for a smooth rope pull (and to reach the ground)!
