If it had more raps I'd give it a higher rating, but my brother and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. 2 hours 10 minutes car to car. A little snow dropping down the north bowl but was able to avoid anything risky. Webbing was a great shape and the rap was a blast.

A lot of work for one rappel. Webbing was in good shape. Pull was difficult. Not a canyon I'll hurry back to.

Still snow and ice off the backside. Fair amount of work for 1 rap, but a good fun winter day in Zion. Good views from East Temple

Fun pretty quick canyon. 2 hrs 45 minutes car to car. The hike up the hill was a definite work out. The hike down the back side had a decent amount of snow and ice. The webbing was in pretty good shape and expanded past the bushes. We used 200 foot ropes and reached basically the bottom. It could be done with shorter ropes and some fairly easy downclimbing.
