 WARNING:

There is insufficient beta for this canyon. Help us improve the Betabase... if you have details to contribute, please submit them to info@canyoncollective.com 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.

    Beautiful route but a very long day. The anchors and webbing were all in good condition. Beautiful route but very long. The exit seems to grow longer each time I go through. Out of the 6 of us only 2 wore wetsuits (shorties). We were all a bit chilly but were able to warm up pretty quickly after each swim. Has anyone else noticed there always seems to be a breeze going through the short subway section?

    We went through Sunday and it was spectacular. Our first time through. Party consisted of four adults and my three kids. 6, 8, and 10. It was a very long day because the six year old determined the pace, but he did it on his own two feet. It was spectacular. One very skinny adult and the very skinny 10 year old wore 4/3 wet suits and were still cold while the rest of us were relatively comfortable with just booties. Water was clean and clear. Beautiful conditions. perfect day.
