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.
Escalante area is likely best known for its stunning backpacking opportunities. There are also plenty of hiking and canyoneering adventures. This makes a great spring and fall destination and would take a lifetime to fully explore.
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.
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.
