The Beast (middle Brimstone) currently has a 100-150 foot swim down a very narrow hallway, right at the end of the slot. If you were coming down from the top, then didn't fit through the swimming section, your life would be in danger. Stemming over the swimmer is not possible. Dragging a wetsuit through the canyon would be next to impossible. Scouting the bottom before entering from the top is recommended.

Even though it was brutally challenging, my wife and I had a great time. She took the low route, I took the high route. It is beautiful in there, certainly a canyon that we will do again.

It took us 5h 42m car-to-car moving at an leisurely pace. We were in the slot for about 2-2.5 hours. The '3' rating is only because of the swimmer at the end.
