With Ben - 3 hours car to car. Good canyon - need at least 70m for second rappel - better done with two ropes

Ben. Easy to spot the sign from the pulloff (second of two before petrified dunes), lots of cairns. Cannonball pool great way to cool off. Pack the rope after the first rap. Second rap is a bit awkward. Long hike out in deep soft sand. Shuttle recommended at Courthouse. Could hitch.

Medium water levels, all potholes had water (knee deep in the second and last one was deep enough to swim). Bolted anchors with long sling, 150'static single line reached comfortably.

no avoiding the pothole going to get wet

05/04/2017
Only had one pothole filled with water during our trip. Great canyon for a quick trip.

Rather dry--only needed to get wet in last pot hole before the 1st rap. Middle is deep, and can be jumped into, but a ledge on the right side allowed for a waist deep crossing.

Nice!

After the last rappel we didn't expect the hike out to be as long as is was.

First I want to commend Ryan on his absolutely fabulous directions. A+ Second I want to highly recommend to anyone doing this canyon in the colder months to wear a wetsuit. That water is CHILLY! We got a little bit later of a start than I would've preferred, but it still worked out okay. If you're going during a colder part of the year (which is fine, we only saw one other group the whole day) try for late morning or early afternoon to give yourself the most sunlight in the canyon to warm up in. After the first rap the wetsuit can come off. We lost the trail out a few times, but never for very long. A GPS was extremely helpful, even with great directions.

approx. date. first "pothole" canyon, used Klemheist anchor for retrievable on last rap

Fun little canyon on a hot day in arches. Water was lower than expected so one pothole took a little effort to escape.
