The Roost is a very remote area of south eastern Utah. Canyoneering adventures in Robbers Roost tend to be fairly dry, and have long exits. The area was used in the late 1800's and early 1900's by outlaws, hence the name. They have left the area with a rich and colorful history and many legends.
Anytime, although summers are too hot for my taste. Because Roost canyons tend to not hold a ton of water, they can be pleasant even in the dead of winter.
Canyoneering has become one of the main draws to Robbers Roost. The area has many good canyons from easy to intermediate, and even a few more advanced ones. Good recommendations for a first time visitor would be Blue John or Larry Canyon. If your up for more challenge, there are some narrower canyons that require a bit of climbing. These include Alcatraz and Chambers. Be warned, Chambers in particular, requires advanced skills.
