    Stefan has been so kind as to set up a little website with the mini- slots that I have been publishing. Here are a couple of pages which are a small preview of the finished product. AngelSlot: http://www.math.utah.edu/~sfolias/minislot/?i=angelslot Angel Cove Canyon: http://www.math.utah.edu/~sfolias/minislot/?i=angelcove

    Let it be clear that both these canyons had clear indications of previous descent. I am not claiming first descents or anything else. Use the beta with caution, and be advised that conditions can change. Plenty of the anchors are in the water course and could be washed out when you get there... If you have questions or comments, please write to me. Keep in mind that Stefan has put a bunch of work into compiling this information and has written the whole thing by hand... Thanks go out to him, big time! Dave

    Thank you BOTH for your efforts. ;) I have a beginner trip going out in April, so some of these small slots might work out perfectly!

    Hey AJ! I occurs to me that the main fork of Angel Cove Canyon could be really nice for beginners and teaching first rappels. The upper "slot" part of the canyon has 3 "nice&easy" rappels to get started and then two optional final rappels at the end of the canyon which go "free". The first of the free raps is short(~20') with a fairly difficult start and transition. The second of the final raps is longer(70'), has an okay start, and would probably be a good "finale" for the day. Angel Slot has a rather heinous first rappel, but has the easiest "transition to free" on the final rappel that I've ever encountered. You can bypass the first rappel and a bit of open "slot" and drop in at the "second" rappel without much difficulty. I know you have plenty of experience teaching first-time rappelling than most. These are just some thoughts... Dave
