    I like how they combined the Swell and CRNP into one. Its basically just one landform isn't it?

    Why didn't they just call 6 best places to go canyoneering?

    Anyway I wouldn't say the article is that bad, but the Roost and Paria should rank higher than Moab. Dinosaur is better than Moab too.

    Neon would definitely make for a "pothole experience" in the wrong conditions.

    Also note the link in the about author section, heading to the authors guiding service website...

    Though most of the canyons in Dinosaur are actually in CO :)

    I disagree. People who learn canyoneering from Outside Magazine should go to Moab.

    I thought the article was about which places have the best quality canyons rather than where to go to learn. I am also confused by the Outside Magazine mention. What does this have to do with Outside Magazine? (Or maybe your comment was meant tongue in cheek?).

    Anyway, do you think the Roost is better than Moab when it comes to canyoneering? I should have mentioned Lake Powell too.

    In my opinion Escalante and Lake Powell are tied for #1, followed by Zion at #3. The Roost would be #4. #5 would be a tie between North Wash or Capitol Reef. The Paria or White Canyon complex would follow with #7 and the San Rafael San Rafael would be #9.

    Although I still like Moab, all these above would rank quite a bit higher on the list than Moab, at least when it comes to quality of canyons.

    I guess... seemed like the kind of article Outside Magazine would have... you know, like Canyoneering Gear for Ladies...
