Disappointing. There is a short pretty section, and it's fun to visit the ruins, but it feels like you spend more time avoiding the canyon than going through it. There are two pothole sections (beginning and end) that would be fun to descend, but there are no anchors, and it would take substantial work to haul enough rocks in there and build all the necessary deadman anchors. The bypass for the first pothole section is tricky and involves descending some loose and friable rock. This canyon needs dedicated construction work before it's worthwhile.
