Approximate approach

Approximate approach

Sometimes a canyon surprises you. Morocco, though I wasn't expecting much given its short length, turned out to be a charmer. Morocco Canyon works great as a beginner canyon, or a short canyon to do after something else earlier in the day. The approach is elegant, with a very improbable looking route up and out of North Wash proper. Though easy, I would caution it has a section of exposure that might not be suitable to those afraid of heights.

All in all, this is a great little canyon, and one I will re-visit often.
