South Fork only. Great winter canyon. Everything was in good shape, no need to replace or build anything new. Used a 60 ft and pull chord on everything in the canyon. Did not do the final 2 rappels down to the dirty due to only bringing the 60 ft. 90ft would allow for everything and a double strand on most rappels. Used exit to right before the last 2 rappels. If you have never been down here, a few canyons use the same exit and it is easy to see the cairn leading out of other canyons. Would be easy to end up at the end of another canyon. Luckily it wouldn't be that far out of the way. There are no cairns marking the exit once you merge with the trail coming up from the dirty devil. Just aim for the very distinctive overhang/cove. Easy scramble and you will eventually see a trail/ cairn by the over hang.

Everything was in good condition. No water, ice or snow in Canyon. Great winter canyon. Didn't have to replace or build a single anchor. It took a Myself and my friend Andrea 2 hours max car to car. Highly recommended for a group looking to venture into winter canyoneering. Straight forward fairly easy route finding on the exit and approach.

Would be easy to end up at the end of another canyon instead of the exit. Luckily it would be that far out of the way.

This canyon doesn't get enough love. Yes it is very short with only 1 rappel and 50 yards of narrow canyon and during the summer it's probably just an after dinner canyon. That being said, with the fresh snow in the area, Winter Camp was just Beautiful. Simply walk down to the rap and then drop 181 feet into a cold and snowy slot. Then simply walk out to a spot of your comfort and exit to the right. It took us 1hr to car to car including rope retrieval. If there is too much snow to do MMI and Lost and Found a quick trip down Winter Camp is worth it.

Too much snow on the climb out (shorter loop route). Not recommended until snow melts. We found 2-4 inches of very loose slippery snow. Went and scouted the exit and decided not to go.
