Tom getting going in SevenUp

First documented by Michael Kelsey in his Henry Mountains guidebook, these canyons were simply given numbers for names. They seem name worthy, so I have taken the liberty of working the numbers into a name. These canyons are all short, and don't require any rappelling.

Five for the Drive is a canyon who's only redeeming quality is that it provides an easy upclimb approach for the other canyons nearby. Do this one only as an approach.

Six Appeal offers a remarkably consistent slot that drops at a constant angle. Very fun, and not particularly difficult or exposed. Beginner friendly with competent leadership.

Saving the best for last, SevenUp offers intermediate or better canyoneers a bit of a R+/X- rated canyon without being overly committing. This is the best of the 3, but requires intermediate or better canyoneers. There is a fair amount of exposed stemming.
First up climb in 5, and the hardest spot.
