One of the early downclimbs. Easier than it looks.

If it weren't for the long-ish approach and exit, I would rate this canyon quite a bit higher. The canyon has a bit of everything. A couple of difficult natural anchors if you choose, or not if you want to bypass them. Some high stemming and silo crossings, but without the significant exposure of the nearby X-rated canyon.

It is an excellent place to practice skills and dabble a bit with some high stemming. That being said, it is not a beginner canyon. There is still a bit of stemming and climbing involved. Intermediates with some experience only! All-in-all, I found this a beautiful canyon to do, but not one I am likely to hurry back to do again.
