Tick List

1 trip Lupacchiotta Canyon - Central Swell
Date: 01/15/2018
Took the kids down this one, good option if you are looking for something quick.
1 trip Arch Nemesis Canyon - Capitol Gorge
Date: 10/29/2017
Great canyon for Capitol Reef. A couple fun rappels, a fairly easy approach, and some beauty. The water was waste deep at most for our trip with a total of 4 pools. 2 members of our team did wear a wet suit, I did not and was happy not to have it on It (the high that day was 65).
1 trip East and West Cheesebox Canyon - Cedar Mesa
Date: 10/28/2017
Some pretty slots, easy down climbs, and small rappels. Easy canyon worth doing once, probably never again if you like more technically challenging canyons.
1 trip Neon Canyon - Escalante
Date: 07/16/2017
Very full of water and such a different canyon than it is when dry. The last keeper is probably covered by 10 feet of water. Still beautiful as ever!
1 trip Choprock Canyon - Escalante
Date: 07/15/2017
Very low water, the grim section was very nice. We stayed Happy the whole time. Great canyon!
1 trip Conundrum Canyon - North Wash
Date: 06/04/2017
If I'm honest the canyon was beautiful in parts, great in the heat but for me I prefer others in this area. It is definitely worth doing at least once and the rappel was interesting!
1 trip SGR Canyon - South of Moab
Date: 04/22/2017
I like to look at canyons as work vs reward. While the technical section of the canyon was very rewarding there is a bit of effort to get there. Was it worth it, yes. Will I do it again, probably not.
1 trip Double Arch Canyon - Eastern Reef
Date: 03/25/2017
Definitely better canyons to do in the swell, if you are looking for something with quick access though this will do.
1 trip Nighthawk Canyon - Grand Wash
Date: 05/29/2016
Was a little disappointed not one pothole required an escape. They were all full of sand, such is the nature of the beast as the canyons change over time. Still enjoyed this canyon
1 trip Wonderland Canyon - Capitol Reef
Date: 05/28/2016
Every anchor was in good condition, no wetsuit needed, water up to waste. Fun down climbing. With no anchor building this canyon wasn't very challenging.
1 trip Cassidy Arch Canyon - Capitol Reef
Date: 05/07/2016
After reading on several sites that retrievable anchors were needed I was surprised to find that most of the rappels were bolted on this canyon. With all the bolted anchors the canyon was very straight forward.
4 trip Crystal Geyser - Green River
Date: 10/09/2015
Made the quick stop off here and it was much cooler than expected. A little out of the way but worth visiting at least once!
1 trip Pandora's Box - Capitol Reef
Date: 06/20/2015
Great skinny canyon. The stemming was fun, but not for the beginners.
1 trip Das Boot - Zion West Side
Date: 04/16/2015
Makes the Left Fork so much better.
1 trip3 trip Kanarra Creek - Kanarraville
Date: 07/14/2014
Great one for the kids!
1 trip Heaps Canyon - Zion Main Canyon
Date: 07/10/2014
Love heaps, quite a bit of fun and a great challenge.
1 trip Deer Creek - North Rim Grand Canyon
Date: 09/20/2012
Even though it is short this is one of my favorites ever. Too bad they shut it down because it is now deemed a sacred site.
1 trip The Squeeze - San Rafael Swell
Date: 05/26/2012
It was pretty dry when we went, I had it more built up in my mind. It thought it would be more challenging.
1 trip Mystery Canyon - Zion East Side
Date: 06/10/2011
Overrated if you ask me. After reading Tom Jones' book I was stoked to hit this canyon. So many better options in the area if you ask me. There are some cool parts to this canyon.
1 trip Pine Creek - Zion Main Canyon
Date: 06/13/2008
Easy canyon, but always breathtaking!
