Planning on venturing out to somewhere other than southern Utah and southwestern Colorado this May for a week of canyoneering. Having ticked off most of our "must do's" in southern Utah and the Ouray area we have decided Arizona is our next destination. With that said we want to maximize our time and am looking for local beta on the Arizona canyoneering scene. I have done a bunch of research but always like to couple it with some knowledge from folks that live or spend alot of time in Arizona. Below is a list of some of the canyons we really want to do and understand we probably will not get all of them completed with our limited time. Were an experienced group and understand that some of the canyons listed below are advanced so no need to question or school us on our abilities and experience levels. Illusions Insomnia The Jug Bear Creek Sundance Parker Waterslides Barney Springs Cherry Crack Addict Hammer Hoodoo Horsetank Wash Sunburst X Pine Wilbur Below are a few questions for those that know Arizona in regards to canyoneering I hope the locals can shed some light on. I understand that alot of these are probably far apart so feel free to group together a good list of canyons that can be done in successful days not having to travel crazy far and include some that may not be listed. From the list of canyons I have provided is there a centrally located camping area that you could recommend so we could hit as many as possible and not waste valuable time traveling daily to our destinations? Or perhaps if we flew into Phoenix could you recommend a great loop trip where we hit 2 different campsites during the week hitting some great canyons on the way? What are the must do canyons to really get a great feel for Arizona canyoneering that I have not listed? Typical water levels in mid/late May and historically is that a good time to come out? What canyons am I missing that need to be added to our list? Thanks in advance for reading my post and for any thoughts or beta on the subject.
