Overview: This canyon offers some technical difficulties. Depending on flash flooding and such there are several obstacles to overcome. The canyon may include some swims and definite climbing up to 5.8 rating. The canyon contains a beautiful arch and much more. Bring extra webbing; you never know what you’ll run into.
