Notes: I realize I'm in the minority here, but I was quite disappointed with MMI. After having done (and loved) Granary and Morning Glory Arch (both rated 4 stars), I was excited to try MMI (rated here as 3.67). The cost to benefit ratio simply wasn't there. ~3 hour round trip from Moab, plus the time to set up a shuttle. First rap was a nuisance, the second was really an assisted downclimb, third rap was fine but not particularly special. The short, "climber's" exit is a misnomer, since it implies the ability to set up protection, e.g. provide belay support for one another. "Spiderman" exit would be more accurate. You're zig-zagging across a sheer, steep sandstone face. Absolutely dry conditions with sticky shoes are imperative. The views inside the canyon are nice but nothing especially unique. I hear Lost & Found is better.

Notes: Fun canyon, great rappels. Went with group of 9. Climber's exit was exposed but super easy.

Notes: W LH. 1st rap is now broken into 3. Nothing longer than 100 ft. Last rap is now the longest at almost exactly 30 meters (100 ft) if you break up the first. Doing this limits risk of ropes getting stuck, the risk would be extremely high if done as one long rappel due to many boulders and chockstones.
