1 trip Diana's Throne Canyon - Zion East Side
Date: 05/30/2022
We did the Huntress on Memorial Day 2022 with our daughter and a friend. Neither had any canyoneering experience, but had been on rappel a few times beforehand. The canyon is perfect for beginners with a skilled leader. We decided to rappel every drop we could for the learning experience, but many drops can be down climbed easier than setting up a rappel. The canyon is in good shape. The bolted anchors and webbing looked okay with some minor wear and weathering. The canyon was completely dry. A couple caught up with us about halfway through and it happens we both attended a canyoneering course from North Wash so we struck up an instant friendship. They talked about the little-known the side canyon mentioned in the beta. They waited for us at the bottom and showed us to the top. They called it The Hunted. It was a short canyon with some good down climbs and a couple of very nice rappels. There was only one stagnant pool and it was easily avoided. No further details here, but if you can find it, it's a great addition to doing the Huntress.
