Ran U-turn Nov. 11, 2019. Replaced webbing on 2nd and 3rd rappel. All anchors appear to be in good condition. Watch rope pull on last rappel for rope grooves. Great beginner friendly canyon. Amazing views.

Great canyon. Lots of technical climbing. Some 5.4 or 5.5 technical climbing that's unprotected between 5-8 feet. Incredible views at the summit of Elephant Butte. The quicklinks at the 1st rappel became loose after a group of 9 went. So be sure to check them prior to your rappel. The 3 pitons have been replaced by 2 newer pitons. Make sure there's a good rope throw on the last rappel. Watch for metal pipes appx. 4 feet below pitons. It's a fun, challenging canyon.
