Came down for Redbull Rampage. My wife needed the truck so i rode my MTB the 17 miles in from the hotel in Virgin, UT. Stashed the bike at the exit trail and caught a ride from some fellow canyoneers wrapping up PC to the top. Canyon was very full and very cold. Much more so than last month. Wore a 4/3 full and a 3mm shorty over it. 10mm dive boots throughout and used my 5mm dive gloves during the long swims just to keep my hands safe especially since i was going solo. Wind was blasting during the final two raps making me feel like i had Parkinson's. 2 hours and 20 min from start to finish. 6.25 hours from hotel to hotel. SAR was out conducting practice ops at the final rap out of the tunnel window. Fun day.

Super full and super fun. Gotta love the last rappell

07/03/2021
5 folks, didn't see anyone until the last rap. Water quality was actually good, low but not stinky. Anchors good. The final rap. Great canyon! 4 1/2 hours.

About 150 feet or so down canyon of the last rappel the canyon starts to widen out and is full of boulder debris to scramble down. Look for a way to scramble up out of the wash on the left (south) side. There are multiple ways to get up to the use trail and the first part of the use trail is a bit difficult to find. This makes it difficult to give a perfect description of how to locate it. In general look for foot traffic areas and keep going up the left (south) side of the canyon toward the base of the cliff. You will soon find a well defined use trail to follow. Follow the use trail along the left side of the canyon. A few spots will be difficult to see and stay on but for the most part this route is very easy travel and much nicer than the wash below. About 0.3 miles from the last rappel, the trail will cross over a drainage (wPineCreekRP-3). When you drop down into the drainage you will need to climb up the other side to continue. The route up is very steep and you may start to wonder if if up the other side is better than going up or down this drainage. Climb up the other side up the steep packed dirt and use a series of twisted tree roots to hold onto for assistance. After climbing up out of the drainage, continue on the trail for about 0.4 miles to the parking spot for the exit option 2 (pkPineCreekBT2). Before getting to the parking spot you will be able to see it from the trail with a large drainage between. The trail will skirt around the large drainage as it works over to the car.

w chris, alec, andrew, quinn. Fun canyon! definitely re-doable. cold swims, cool rappels, nice swimming hole at the end. take off wetsuit after last rappel. Also good idea to keep someone at first stage of last 2 stage rappel for a proper belay.

Awesome. Very wet, very cold water. I thought the first pool was going to be about a foot deep. I eased in and disappeared! Glad I had my THICK wetsuit on. Super cool canyon.

Started at 9 am. Mark Hartner, Alysen Guadagnin, Jennica Krummenacher, Josh Olcott. Got the rope stuck on the first rappel, had to make a human ladder to retrieve it. Ran across SAR doing a training session by the last rappel. Water was very low, Cathedral was a semi keeper pothole, but Mark was able to climb out an bring the rest of us out.

11/03/2019
CO-guided group of 12. Was able to bypass water at cathedral by staying right through arch. No other water in canyon. Want to do again when wet.

5 of us went through, had groups ahead and behind us but kept in rhythm much of the way. Water is low, look for multi stages raps due to the water level. Beautiful narrows and already fun canyon. Bouldering is a navigation challenging at the top of the exit. Full Wetsuits were used and enjoyed by all.

3.5 hours, 4 people, very full from monsoon season, so beautiful and fun. a couple new or changed obstacles. one of my favorite runs of any canyon ever

08/17/2018
Great canyon. I took a group of 4 through, two of which were cold even in wet suits while two of us we're just fine without them. So if you are particularly warm blooded (and it is hot out) you shouldn't have a problem but if you get cold easily make sure you bring a wet suit.

07/13/2018
pretty empty. lots of people from work, lots of beginners, very stressful, long day. other option for final rap is better

Lance, Matt, Kirra, Me - 4.5 hours. Started just before 1pm. Everyone said we needed wetsuits. Glad to have them in some spots but probably could have got away without it. The hike out was a beast.

06/12/2018
Just as fun as the last 2 times! One of meee favorites for sure!

04/20/2018

Scott,Alan,Joel,DJ and I finished up our Zion trip with Pine Creek, This canyon is so cool, Lots of cool canyon walls bridges, and formations.. I would love to take Whit in this canyon. Lots of cold water, I only wore my 3 mm full wetsuit and felt fine, but DJ was cold only wearing his 3 mm full. This canyon requires a shuttle. lots of boulders to climb on the exit but fairly easy.

best canyon ever. mostly full

04/18/2017
It was cold but worth it

01/01/2017
Were sandwiched in between two annoying groups and the climb out was long and very cold in the shade even in heavy wet suit bring a change of clothes next time. and needed permit. But pretty and glad we did it! The one group had a neat rope bag where they only used as much length as needed and tied off the rest and it was a skinny rope awesome set up

Started with Keyhole, then went to Pine Creek. Long day, but was very fun. Water was pretty low, but still cold. Took a group of 9 through canyon, after, I went back to keyhole to pick-up my harness that I left at the end of Keyhole.
