Really fun canyon! Not as hard as expected from stories and beta. Both rappels are pretty straight forward. Mostly this canyon is just tight. There are only a few spots that you have to stem above the deck. This canyon has a unique character of very dark and sinuous. I would definitely recommend long sleeve shirts and pants since it is so tight. Also the down climbing is very knee and elbow intensive since the canyon is so tight.

Did this with Ally sometime in the summer. A little more slotty than I would’ve liked, and lots of daddy long legs

Went through Alcatraz 4/4. Couple of spots with water but avoidable in all except 2-3 spots with the deepest section only being thigh deep. Great quick option!

This was a sweet canyon. The hike out takes a little longer than you might think. Beautiful views and total solitude.

A fantastic canyon indeed and quite challenging, however due to the many very tight slots I would NOT recommend for anyone over 175-180lb. I am on the smaller side and had no problem squeezing through many areas my friends had to climb up and over, but my buddy got stuck twice and due to temps dropping into the 20's that night, 3 of us hiked out to get him help. We have done many canyons together and this is the 1st time we had difficulty. A very tumultuous situation, luckily turned out well. I would also not do this canyon with less then 4 people.

Driving beta is a bit odd here: "Go left again in less than 0.1 miles." I would say that you fork right at the junction at 7 miles, and then go straight down the road past a turnoff to the right. There's no left turn to speak of. Essentially follow the sign to Ekker ranch at that point. Road conditions were no sweat in a Honda Civic all the way to the end. No wetsuit needed, water got knee deep at the worst where it was unavoidable. The slot is very real here, gloves were super helpful just because of how often your hands were in contact with the walls. Every piece of equipment you own will get shredded to bits. A lot of fun and quite challenging at times. Good camping at trailhead or on the Larry exit road just past.

amazing and physically exhausting but worth every moment

3.45c2c me, suzy. only rapped once (out of the pothole) after the big entry rap. a LOT of deep, dark, amazing, contorted shimmying. Easier than Chambers, but more squeezing for longer and almost as tight.
