    Actually, the messy dirty tree rappel thing is a good example of sheep syndrome. It sucks, AND is totally unnecessary, and people only do it because that is where the obvious trail goes.

    Follow the watercourse.

    Down the watercourse, a short rappel is made off a convenient, stout tree (requires sling) to the edge of a pothole, then down a second short drop into that knee-deep pool you spend so much effort avoiding when doing the messy rappel. A pleasant, scenic rappel.

    PLEASE READ THE LATEST BETA before doing this canyon and before doing Mystery.

    It's a simple scramble down to the big tree ... no rappelling needed! Doing that as a rap is for suckers! :)

I enjoy the hike to the's usually dry when I don't want to do a wet has some nice scenery...and the last rappel is quite spectacular with a grand view of the main canyon. About the only part I don't like is the dirt scramble/rappel down to the 3rd (?) to last rappel off the tree.

    Speaking of sheep syndrome....... anyone read the story on Exum Guides in the latest issue of Outside Magazine? Good article, also has a nice spill about the difference between US and Euro guides and guiding........ baaa baaaa baaaa..... read the article and you'll get it.......

    The same rag also has a spill about "Thrill of the Skill". In the article it list's the ACA and how for $265 bones you can sign up for a 3-day course that ends in descent of Mystery Canyon........... HUH?!?!? Article comes complete with a pic of what I believe is Buckskin. I guess all slot canyons look alike to the editors of Outside. har har........
