Ice Cream Cone on the approach

Sawtooth is one of the short, mini-slot canyons near Beaver Canyon. The canyon itself is very short, with not much to recommend it, and its short nature. Did I mention the canyon was short?!?! The camping near and at the trailhead, however, is sublime. With big views into the deep Dirty Devil River canyon and Robbers Roost across the way. It makes a good primitive camping destination, with a short after dinner canyon thrown in to pass the time.

The canyon has no rappels, though a variation is occasionally done that adds 2 rappels at the very end to get down to the Dirty Devil. This is not particularly recommended. A little high stemming and a few sorta-tricky downclimbs make this not appropriate for rank beginners, but intermediates should have no problem.
