Hello All, This past weekend, I met up with some friends and spent the weekend canyoneering at Marble Canyon, Arizona. This was my first time to the area. I'd been told that the wind can howl out there; we did not get any wind until Sunday morning - then it blew! Using Todd Martin's book, Grand Canyoneering, we descended the North Fork of Soap Creek (pg 157) and returned to the road via the South Fork (pg 158). Because of our late start, we did not go to the river. Saturday we descended the South Fork of Badger Canyon and hiked to the river. To return to the road, we walked down the river and used Exit Option 2 (pg 150). Yes, that is my son rappelling on page 150. On Sunday, the rest of the group did Sevenmile Draw (pg 145) and reversed the canyon on the way out which required ascending the rappel with the rope that they left earlier in the day. They went to the river and back. The weather was awesome all three days. The wind did pick-up Sunday afternoon and they got pretty sandblasted on the walk back to the road. I was impressed with the area. I liked being able to go to the river. The hike back up was a bear!!!!! I will definitely go back to that area again. One of the nice things about the trip was how short the travel time was - it is a little over 120 miles. I encourage you to explore the area. Todd's book is a great resource. Felicia ps - No pictures because my camera got busted a couple of weeks ago.
