Few canyons pack as much fun in as short of a section of a canyon as this one! The approach, a leisurely hour, is scenic with a dramatic background. The canyon? It starts mellow and open, possibly even a bit hum-drum. Soon though, a natural bridge appears, then a few pools, and next thing you know, you deep in a slot canyon with a smile ear-to-ear.

The canyon is straightforward, but one of the rappel anchors is a deadman without much material to build a new one with if the old one washes away. That, coupled with a hard start on that particular rappel, make this an intermediate canyon. Beginners with competent leadership would also do well.
