*** WARNING *** Canyons can be dangerous places. Always ensure you have the required skills and experience before setting out. Never go alone and always let someone know where you are going. Using these notes is done at your own risk. You are responsible for checking for and obeying any closures relevant to this canyon.

A short but sweet canyon that gets more traffic these days. The walk in is over before you know it and it has a narrow lower section which is the highlight. It can dry up in the winter months, so the best time is after the new year or after some recent rain. As usual, if the water level looks high, don’t do it.

Park your car around HERE somewhere and look for a gate in the fence.

Be aware that the rock can be sharp and loose in the canyon, so watch your rope placement and pull downs.

For the exit, head up the slope as soon as you exit the canyon. There is a faint track there made by me over several trips.
