1 trip North East Fork of TCB - Robbers Roost
Date: 05/25/2020
Could see how it could hold water after it rains. There was one small pool in a dry season that we were able to stem over, and I think you could stem over most of the water of it existed.

Small Alcatraz!!! Just Felix and I. A 5/5, but 4 because of daddy long legs. There is a camp site next to the entrance, but meh - convenience only. Sandy walk down to the wash, but not long and not bad - there is a good foot trail that leads you were you need to go. The canyons are tight but only a few spots were I could go but Felix couldn’t and he went over the log when I went under it. Super awesome that you don’t need rope. Beautiful slots, super tight but not terribly technical. Obvious exit was nice, not long track back either. Fantastic!! Will come back again with. More people to try the final down climb. Perfect for last day canyon before driving out!! You can see the Sphinx rock from the parking spot, which is a little further then your exit. We did it in just under 3 hours while taking our time and enjoying it. We had fun the entire time. Just enough of a challenge and interesting the whole time.
1 trip Northwest Fork of Big Spring Canyon - High Spur

Felix and I. Great short entrance, gets interesting and slotted really quick. Beautiful first repel. Nice tight sections, even shaded / dark a few times (no head lamps needed). Has a few interesting down climbs that were super fun. Really pretty swirls. The second repel is off of a boulder and is in two stages- we extended the courtesy anchor really far and were glad for it. About 30 feet to the second stage - large pretty room. Then drop another 25 feet to a really pretty room. Take off harnesses, leave pads on. A few more right and squeezes, and two more down climbs. Those had webbing, we didn’t need them. A few more interesting subway like hall ways, really pretty. The exit was not bad, short height out of the canyon, then desert walk until you find the road. Our note is to remember to go left sooner when you hit the red crust. Short road walk back to car. We recommend this for beginners with adequate leadership experience. We could take Martin and Inge on this.

Great easy set up canyon. Shuttle very important!!! Not long repels make an easier out. Very Pretty and don’t need elbow or knee pads. The 75 two stage is 50 feet. Good beginner canyon!
