Sun afternoon with Maddie, 1h45m including lots of nav issues getting to the start & some issues with the rope pull

With my dad. Approach was confusing. Went up on the south side of the hole instead of the north and it got sketchy. Going more north there was a sign for the rappel. The first rappel had too much rope drag to pull the rope and we had to redo it. Second one went off without a problem.

Full family. Got lost on the approach and had to do a second lap around the valley to find the spot.

So much fun! Great overhang. Be weary of webbing.

With Sandra, Leo, and Lisa. Sandra and Leo and I followed the beta and map on Gaia to find the entrance and did the rappel into the Lair. Met Lisa at the bottom and all hiked out together through Carmel Canyon.

H2, SW, TC, ER, EA, AH, EH had to do some backtracking but really that made it that much more fun! the Lair was super cool and we did a dual rope setup for the rap with our 150' ish ropes.

Rope grooves were very deep. Needs protecting at this edge.

Always start our canyon trip every year with this rappel to assess and prep everyone. Very busy when we were there.

Nice spot in Goblin Valley

08/30/2018
the drop into the cavern was inspiring. great little rap.

07/12/2018
We had lots of fun scrambling around on the approach, some minor route finding challenges going down, and one of the cooler rappels I've done. Bad rope grooves with nothing to protect them! Stunning cave, great place to relax and cool off before the hike out. This made a fun afternoon outing as an accompaniment to other canyons in the areas (we made a two day trip out of it).

06/16/2018
Alysen, Kevin, Jonathan took the run after waiting out the heat. We started at 6pm as the sun was setting and a windstorm started in. Got back to camp with twilight quickly fading around 9 pm.

05/01/2018
Super sick! would do again.

04/15/2018
So fun! Short but super sweet! Hike to the entrance was incredible! The Goblin valley is unreal! I gotta go back and explore deeper into the small cave at the bottom of the rappel!

Took the fam to the edge of the pit. Laura decided not to rappel and returned. Brett was with us, so he hiked back with her. The rest of us rappeled down into the cathedral. Great fun.

TONS of webbing on anchor (7!). Fun rap, easy hike out.

03/18/2017

Took my friend through his first rappel. Fun and mellow. Great directions on the site.

03/03/2017
Fun approach and good introduction to rappelling if going with beginners. Anchor is straightforward and the chamber is impressive.

Fantastic, the approach hike is beautiful, just like the rappel. If you hike back at night be sure to bring a map and compass and pay attention to the trail.

Little confusing finding the rappel station but if you take your time and do a little searching you'll find it.

Took three hours due to some route-finding errors and getting stuck behind a large commercial group. WARNING: A large rope groove with a very sharp edge has formed at the rappel. It took a huge core shot out of the rope for the group in front of us. Be very careful about making sure your rope does not end up in that particular groove or bring a means to protect that section of the rope.
