Great canyon! It was a week after the rain and we had short swims through the narrows. All bolts have been cut at the last rap and there is a 10-15 sling around a flat rock near the edge, leaving the quick link about 8ft from the edge. However, with this sling the rap is closer to 120 ft. A doubled 60m will leave you short.

Forgot to mention that there are new owners of the kane creek parking area and the fee is $3/person

Freezing. Unprepared for the water, lol

This is the second time I've done this canyon. I've had a large pool to wade through every time, just after the first rap. There is one more section that was avoidable once and not avoidable once. A wet-suit would be overkill in my opinion. The last rap is very beautiful. Great spot for a fiddle stick!

Great hike and rappels. Watch out for poison ivy in the ascent gully and wildflowers up top. Fins are stunning but highly exposed. Horrible rope grooves on last rap, best to rap/handline/belay down to lower bolts, clip in on direct, and rig rope from there. A 60m rope would be enough from there but not from the higher bolt (maybe 30' of pull cord to make it?).

Beautiful fin narrows hike to a great arch. We didn't bring a rope, so we backtracked--still very fun!

w/ Zak, Brett, Ferrin Fun, remember to keep heading in a straight direction before making the second side route unless you've done it before. Water was above knee to waist depending on height, I'm 6'. Got behind a guide group that would not let us play through :( At last repel to get around guided group we added a new anchor up and to the left of the final rap. Walk until you can look back and see the normal final rap then step down onto the edge you will see our webbing about 10' back from ledge attached to tree. Walk out was a little longer than we expected but still good. As for the fee, if you have a high clearance 4x4 you can drive until there is an obvious pull out on the left before a set of big steps heading down into the wash. This saved us ~$8 by paying only for the vehicle.

There was no one else on the trail. We did the optional pool arch rappel, it was awesome. left a carabineer on the last rappel. ~5 hours

Great 3-4 hour canyon! 3 raps, the first and last are amazing! Very fun technical approach too.
