    Saw this canyon in my buddies book as I was orientating him with Red breaks TH on site at the drill hole. A year or two ago while out wandering by red breaks I found myself in the wrong drainage and this week realized I was heading into drill hole. Can’t find anything on it. Like if it’s pretty or has pucker factor!
    Lemme know.
    Thanks.
    I’m new

    Hey Johnny,

    I did this thing once years ago. I was solo in-between trips. The only thing significant that I remember was that Kelsey recommended a hook for one or two short raps. I found (possibly difficult) downclimb options instead. Otherwise, a sandtrap would likely work well. The first 4-5 pictures in this album are from Drill Hole: https://photos.app.goo.gl/duxPwMHNZNqg48658

    Oh and beauty-wise, for the area I'd give it a 2 out of 5.

    There is one of those posted a ways beyond the top of the waterfall at Upper Calf Creek. I have a canvas of this picture hanging in my bathroom. My wife is not amused. Microsoft Paint FTW.

    Many of the best canyons on the Colorado Plateau are not published in order to preserve the opportunity for YOU to have an exploration experience. Don't assume something sucks because it hasn't been put in a book or on a website.
