Overview: Egypt Slot is an all around fun canyon.  It contains very narrow sections, water, high canyon walls and more. Scrambling /climbing techniques are required. The big drop at the beginning, although it might be fun (not sure the height), is avoidable by scrambling down the East side.

Approach: From Hwy 12 leaving Escalante, turn right onto Hole in the Rock Road. From the turn off, drive 16.5 miles to another well established dirt road on the right. Turn right and continue on new dirt road for 9 miles. The canyon will be south of the parking. It gets hot so bring lots of water.
