Tick List

1 trip2 trip Elephant Butte - Arches National Park
Date: 05/18/2019
Scramble up rockfall in front of Owl Rock. Head to the back of canyon, turning right at the junction. After scrambling up the bowl, R1 (~85 ft) was moved from left-side to right-side and many rope grooves now exist there. After R1 (~85 ft) at canyon bottom, head up rock fall directly next to R1 (to the left). Head to top, and cross over crack where safe to get to R2 (~65 ft), or head to top and cross over when done visiting. To get to top, find a weakness on Western-South side of the highest ledge. R1 (~85 ft) and R2 (~65 ft) are solid chains and well maintained.
1 trip Sunseed Canyon - Kane Creek

GPS navigating in the fins to find R1 was extremely helpful. Water found, but avoidable. R2 was a thriller; reminded me of Englestead in Zion. Huge wall! Used 300 ft and 135 ft ropes on R2 that worked nicely. Exit to the road was surprising that we were met with housing and a no trespassing sign. R2 anchors were solid and recently replaced.
1 trip Angel Slot - Angel Point
Date: 11/11/2017
Great little canyon. Took 3 hrs 25 min for 3 of us to go through, car to car, casually. This has it all - great place to practice skills from beginner to expert.
1 trip Egypt 3 Canyon - Escalante
Date: 03/18/2016
Great non-technical slot canyon with an optional rappel at the end. Some stemming, but mostly squeezing through some really tight places, which makes it quite fun.
1 trip Shenanigans - Middle West Butler
Date: 10/15/2015
Didn't like how tight the slot was, and got stuck a few times as a 180 lb male. Raps were fun, but many awkward, however used many natural anchors.
