    The Hype

    Percy Canyon is a long, somewhat physically demanding canyon that makes its way down the slopes of Mount Seymour. This route begins very close to the Mount Seymour ski area, and works its way down almost to sea level. There will be some rock and gravel walking and a lot of scrambling through large boulders. There are lots of downclimbs, some in dry areas, most in water, with tricky footing on slick rock and moss. For much of the trip, you will be walking in a dry canyon, but there will also be swims through a few pools, and rappels through waterfalls. One of the fascinating things about this canyon is how the water keeps disappearing and reappearing throughout. In some spots, if you listen carefully, you can hear the water running beneath the gravel and rocks at your feet.​
