The Best Canyon in the Swell! Well, the meatiest technical canyon in the Swell, at the very LEAST. The Squeeze is a lot of fun when full of water, featuring many rappels, many swims, a couple nice arches, two potholes to get across and lots of exciting sports action.
There are several different ways to approach The Squeeze - this version starts from Hidden Splendor and follows an old mining trail up around to the top. Kind of a scenic tour, this route is not necessarily any shorter than other ways to get there, but does get you more fun canyon action and CAN be largely in the shade for the uphill parts.
This canyon is not named on the USGS maps. The name The Squeeze comes from Steve Allen's 1992 "Canyoneering: The San Rafael Swell" book. He named it The Squeeze as it is one of the narrowest canyons in the Swell. Mr. Kelsey called this canyon "Segers Hole Canyon" in his 1999 San Rafael Swell (3rd edition) book.
