Blarney, and the left fork of Blarney, in particular, is one of the best slots in North Wash. Its short approach, beautiful slot sections, and straight forward anchors make this a great choice for beginners and experienced canyoneers alike. I would recommend this as a good introduction to the area, and a place to start before jumping into the slightly harder and longer Right Fork of Leprechaun Canyon.

The canyon is usually dry or can hold only a few small pools right after recent rains. The lack of water makes it a good choice in cooler seasons when you want to stay dry.
