Interesting to read about the story of the cow from November/2011!! I can report that the remains of the cow are still there!! However it is just bones and there is no smell. There are two options to rap. The first is right at the top. Reports are that this is a difficult and challenging spot. We opted for the less technical rap about 100 feet down the right side of the canyon. Found a great natural stone anchor, webbed it up and down we went. It was a great little trip. We will go back and try the more challenging rap another day.

Fun rappel, but you need to push out away from the tight slot area so as not to get stuck. Piece of a dead snake part way down. A little further is a camel back pack and a Nalgene. Anyone with a long stick or trekking pole can get some booty. We had 190' of rope out to just reach the bottom, and rapped off the platform on canyon right below the big tree on the rim above. Used ~30+' of webbing off that tree down to the rappel start.

Not a friendly canyon and short, skip it for others. Snake on first ledge, last 50 feet of "down climb" is a crack traversing down canyon difficult for newbies, cow still in process of decay and with the amount of sun and 2 years since it's passing it will be there a long time.

Awesome rappel! Even though I landed right on top of the dead cow. The canyon is short and sweet! Fun if you are in the area. We finished our day of 4 canyons with this one. The weather was perfect at 60+ degrees.

The beta on Climb-Utah was not the greatest with this canyon. The GPS waypoint led me about 200 feet away from where I needed to be, so we just found a good tree and rapped from there.

All in all, had a great time on this rappel! The noob that was with me said it was his funnest one all day! the cow wasn't even stinky!

Repeat, Jr still has a dead cow in it. Things have began chewing on it but it hasn't gone anywhere. It smells hideous. Do be aware this is down there if you want to rap wouldn't be a pleasant experience. Rest of the canyon dry and easy. We hiked in from the bottom. Also, the 4WD road mentioned on has been closed off for reseeding, so we just parked on the road and everything was fine.

9 ft long dead cow at bottom of rappel. Solid now, liquification coming soon. Suggest this canyon be avoided by the squeamish.

Road was fine up to the 4wd road marked on Shane's map. Instead of using the 4wd road from the beta (which isn't drivable), continue South to the first pullout on the left, and hike from there. There is an emerging trail there. Canyon was dry, and very short.

However, I'd recommend skipping this canyon for two reasons. 1) It's not very good; worse than Winter Camp Slot (which is the same type of canyon - one rappel with a hike; but this one is shorter with a more convoluted exit) and 2) there was a cow trapped in the canyon which we tried to help get out for three days, but even with the owner/rancher's help we were unable to do so. So, the aroma will not be pleasant in there for quite some time.
