Optional rappel is not worth it. Could easily downclimb through the rappel. Hike out was much longer than expected

Down Egypt 2 and up Egypt 3 including the bottom technical section. The squeezing up canyon from the last technical section is the money slot. I can't say the technical section adds much more to the canyon and would probably just recommend heading down to the pretty arch and then turning around for the return trip. Bone dry except for a single pothole easily bridged across.

super fun zippy dry slot (2 people in 2 bous for the canyon itself), but very snug for someone with a ~42 in chest. exit took a bit of route finding, more like 2 hours from the bottom, not one, but well worth it.

Technical section had a lot of water. Neck deep for my 6ft 1 partner assisting me out of the first pothole. Very muddy whole way through.

Scott, alan, Joel and I went down Egypt 2 and went up 3. Egypt 3 was pretty skinny. We also rapelled the big 300ft drop on Egypt 2. Pretty awesome. This was my first big rap

Great non-technical slot canyon with an optional rappel at the end. Some stemming, but mostly squeezing through some really tight places, which makes it quite fun.

awesome hike. No gear needed and a lot of fun down climbs. Longish uphill hike out. Found an acoustic whisper dome by accident on the way out.

What a blast! Wading trough pools, squeezing through narrows, and a technical section that is certainly worth it. Exit could be confusing if you don't study it carefully. Don't go to the top of the domes until you make it to the final mesa that brings you level with your vehicle.

Very cool canyon, especially for being non technical. Some very sustained narrow slots, with some neat corkscrewing sections. Last section was quite narrow, Steve had a hard time getting through! Eric, Jule, Steve and myself on this one. Pretty long exit hike.

date is a total guess. This was one of our very first Slot Canyons. We were not doing technical Canyon at that point.
