Merry Piglet Dryfall to climb around

Merry Piglet Dryfall to climb around

Merry Piglet is probably my least favorite of the North Wash canyons. The approach is elegant and fun, but the canyon itself it a series of quick chimney drops in a very short section. Experienced canyoneers can downclimb most of these, but if its your first time through, be careful. They have a bit of exposure and are a bit tricky.

After recent rain, I had one deep wade (avoidable with crimpy climbing on the left), and one very short (stroke or two) swim near the end.

Merry Piglet!
