Good Day Jim is one of the Bullfrog area classics. It provides great scenery in a fantastic setting. Combine this with Hard Day Harvey, and you have a full weekend of canyoneering.

The standard route provides one dramatic crux, a keeper pothole. This pothole can range from a few feet deep and easy to over 12 feet deep and very difficult, depending on how the sand has been scoured out. If you want a pothole challenge, this is usually a good place to find one. Pack tosses generally work well for getting out of the pothole, but throw far, the down canyon side is a slickrock ramp.

Luckily, an alternative Average Joe route is available that sees the canyon while avoiding the pesky keeper. Advanced Canyoneers will likely enjoy the challenge of the standard route, but intermediate groups can enjoy the canyon as well via the alternate Average Joe Route. Both routes are described, and both require moderate route finding. A GPS or good map skills are needed.
