THE quintessential beginner canyon in Zion, Keyhole has been many canyoneers introduction to Zion canyoneering. The canyon is VERY short, taking most groups 1-2 hours to complete. The rappels are short, and straight forward, and navigation is fairly easy. This is suitable for most groups with at least some technical experience.
Note: Keyhole is a great beginners canyon, but does have a fair amount of cold water exposure. Wetsuits required in all but the very hottest conditions, and even then, a wetsuit is welcomed.
