Don't underestimate the time required to do the entire canyon top down. Took us about 12 hours, TH to the Gravel exit.

White and most tributaries flashed two days before we descended, and continued to flow with sunshine. Canyon is completely full of water. Expect multiple swimmers, although most are short lived. Several miles are flooded, so wading while never seeing your feet will surprise you. Wading for miles takes time.

Be prepared to build deadman anchors when other natural options are not close. But all can be rigged with enough webbing. Most can be down climbed if you explore all your options.

There are 1-2 spots that get very narrow, but not extremely tight. Most will make it through OK.
