Overview:  This canyon offers some challenges for modest to expert canyoneers only. This canyon is known for getting rope snags. Plan carefully by bringing ascenders, extra webbing  and extra rope.


From east end of Mount Carmel Tunnel (parking lot) walk east along the road 500m. Begin your ascent north and drop on the other side. Same approach as Spry Canyon.  Just on the other side of the drop head north along the ridge to the first drop. Take a guide book. This canyon is not well traveled and has many technical difficulties.
