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. 

Anchors seem fairly new with new webbing, however, webbing was tied directly to the anchors without rapid links so it will wear through quickly.  Be sure to take plenty of webbing if you're going through.

Managed to get part of a rope stuck on the 2nd to last rap and spent over 90 minutes trying to free it before it started to get dark.  

I would add this to my list of "Zion Classics". Definitely would want to avoid in the summer, possibly a great fall and late spring canyon. 

There are a few amazing narrow slot parts but for the most part the canyon is wide and deep.  Absolutely beautiful!
