    I'm taking my 17 year old nephew canyoneering in Utah this August. I thought it would be fun to take him to the slot that drops into a pool in the film "127 Days". What is the name of that canyon?

    The name of that canyon is "Hollywood".

    The pool is in The Crater in Midway and is a diving venue near Heber, Utah, an hour east of Salt Lake City.

    The slot scenes were filmed in Leprechaun Canyon, in North Wash, near Hanksville.

    BlueJohn itself is a great canyon, though not the section Aron got caught in. But August is not a very good time to do it as it will be brutally hot.

    Did the film combine a shot from a slot canyon and The Crater? or can a person actually drop down from the slot into The Crater like in the film?

    Yes, you can drop right into the pool from the crack, all you have to do is shimmy to the side 162 miles to the NNW as you drop..... ;-)
