Pleiades Canyon

Pleiades Canyon My buddy and I completed this canyon yesterday (9/17/16). It was my first weekend canyoneering, and my partner was the one showing me the sport. Unfortunately, on the 3rd rappel, he pulled his shoulder out instinctively grabbing onto a rock(Not a great place to be injured). Fortu...

Behunin Canyon, March 5, 2016

Great day for Behunin. Snow in Little Siberia area made for a slick approach. Some snow pack in the upper part of Behunin made sure that the little bit of flow was extremely cold but no real deep spots, except the 6th rap, first person will get good and wet but can guide everyone else over the pool...

Lower Fish Creek to Reverse Hands Ruin

This is an easy hike now. The BLM has developed it with trail markers and the trail itself appears to be maintained or at least well used. I remember having to do some bushwhacking and creek crossings in the past. The first two ruins are in close proximity to each other. We think the mileage was 3....
