Lots of water in both canyons. There was a swimmer in Dang that turned us around. We then headed to Ding, lots of knee-deep wading.

Ding had a few potholes that were avoidable. Dang had the usual long skinny pool at the end that can avoided with a little stemming.

Ding had one pothole that had waist deep water. However, if you cling to the north side of that wall, you can bypass that spot completely.

Dang had 2 mandatory waders. Both were waist deep. It may be a few weeks (or a month) before it's dry again.

Great non-tech canyon. Think Little Wild Horse but on Steroids.

A couple of pools, all easy to avoid, except maybe two in Ding, but still avoidable with some effort. Old webbing on a rusty old bolt at the drop in Ding, but it's easier to use the south side bypass. Fun, simple canyons.

We ascended Ding and descended Dang. 3 hrs, 15 mins car to car.

2 short sections with knee height water. My partner bridged over the water and never got wet.

We found a bolt on 1st boulder obstacle, but we were able to downclimb.

Further on, another bolt with webbing with knots to use as a handline down a drop.

This was an easy route with beautiful sandstone. We went through without seeing anyone else and saw no other vehicle parked in the area, whereas Little Wild Horse parking area was overflowing when we drove out.
