Brimstone Canyon - North Fork

Last Candition: January 6, 2017


3 out of 5
Date of Trip: January 6, 2017

This one hasn't seen much traffic lately - the difficult ascent and traverse are a significant barrier to entry. Lots of loose, dangerous rock in the upper one third of the canyon. Be careful re falling rock on rappel. We had to replace seven of the fourteen anchors, some just webbing replacement, others cairns that had flashed down canyon. Webbing on the other seven was nearing end of life and should be replaced by the next group. Bring plenty of webbing. The lower two thirds of the canyon is very scenic and enjoyable.
