Fantastic canyon! Three really good elevator downclimbs that many of us really enjoyed. The water level is about one third of capacity. Two keeper potholes in current conditions. One was conquered via partner assist and the other via a potshot toss. The potshot toss needs to be made far enough, further than we initially thought. We barely launched ours far enough. It started to come back up as the first person climbed out. Sandtrap required for this one. It took a group of eight of us a little under six hours to complete.

We encountered a moderate amount of water. Two neck deep wades were required. No wetsuits were needed on this 80 degree day.

Having a group of at least four people for this canyon is recommended.

This was a tricky canyon that required advanced sandtrap technique. Having several skilled canyoneers in your group is strongly recommended. Finding this canyon tippy top full would be extremely hazardous and difficult. Go during a dry part of the year.

We finished in four hours car-to-car with a very strong group. Great canyon.
