Pleiades is a very different beast than any other canyoneering adventure in southeast Utah I know of. It flows most of the time, and is spring fed, so the water is cold. The canyon, with its seven waterfalls is filled with extraordinary beauty and charm. With a short approach and short exit, this is one not to be missed by canyoneers that are comfortable in flowing water canyons.
