Narrow Canyons

An example of the NARROW!
Narrow canyons are canyons that heavier folks may not find particularly pleasant. I'm 6'2" and about 180-185lbs, and the canyons listed below were tight on me, and required some squeezing, sweating, and struggle to fit through.

If you are larger than I am, or do not like confined spaces, these are the ones to avoid! Smaller folks are likely to enjoy to tight, sinuous slots that often feel more like caves than canyons.

North Wash

Canyoneering is king in North Wash, and likely the reason most visit. North Wash canyons tend to be short, narrow, and physical. This is the place to bring long sleeves and long pants. With easy access, next to the highway, this makes a good choice for groups.

Robbers Roost

The Roost is a very remote area of south eastern Utah. Canyoneering adventures in Robbers Roost tend to be fairly dry, and have long exits. The area was used in the late 1800's and early 1900's by outlaws, hence the name.

San Rafael Swell

My favorite area in Utah, the San Rafael Swell offers excellent camping, hiking, canyoneering, and rock climbing. For solitude and amazing views, this is the place to go.
