Took a group of 7 (6 noobs) through in 2 1/2 hours. No webbing left at raps 1 or 3. The cairn anchor had brand new webbing at rap2 and looked great. Otherwise, uneventful trip (which is a good thing).

Took a group of 10 (7 noobs) through the canyon and took 4 hrs car to car. The 2nd rappel deadman has been destroyed and the new anchor is about 20ft back on the single pine tree there.

1st rap has no webbing. We ghosted that one. Bring about 40ft of webbing if you are going through.

3rd and final rap webbing was replaced by us.

What a fun canyon! Personally, I like it better than Tierdrop. Replaced webbing at 1st and 3rd anchors. 2nd anchor was a deadman which looked brand new. Took us 1hr 55min for 5 from car to car. Very cool raps, especially the last one. For the last rappel we used our 200ft rope and did the 1st tier and 2nd tier and had about 5ft of rope spare on the bottom. Easy rope pull too. Definitely a underrated "canyon" in my opinion.

Did this on an outstanding, sunny day. No bolts on this route - all natural anchors. No rigging found at first two raps. At third rap, there's a somewhat frayed 7ml rope with a rap ring tightly set around a boulder. No water features. A 4th rap could be gained in this canyon. Continue down the wide slickrock bowl after the 3rd rap to a good sized, solitary juniper about 30 feet back from the sloping edge. Rig a retrievable anchor off the tree extended to near the edge and rap less than 100 feet to a slickrock ledge tucked under the cliff. Partially free. From there, you can descend a steep slope down to the canyon bottom and avoid the long ledge exit that joins in with the Tierdrop exit.
