We did this as a quickie after doing Black Hole earlier in the day.

The road was passable to the 2 Subarus in our 3 car caravan. Drop in was right there at the cars and we had a car spotted near the end to shorten the walk (could have done the climbers exit except the shuttle car was already down canyon).

Beta told us there would be some deepish water and all we saw was a seeping spring about 2-4' above the canyon floor and no pools anywhere.

Come to this canyon for the scenery, not for the water relief on a hot day.

If you read my Can... report on Horse Tanks, take that paragraph about rock art and put it in here. I confused the 2; so this is the canyon that had the rock art, rock structure 40' up and interesting rock formations all along the walk out.

A rather uneventful & short canyon that lives up to its name. A couple of downclimb spots and some brief narrows. No water to negotiate. There were no pools of water so no swimming and nothing even resembled perhaps a dried out pool, so whatever used to be there is probably filled in now.

Absolutely dry, unfortunately. We were looking forward to some water. Didn't care for the "climber's exit" - felt sketchy with the sand buildup, and so hiked most of the way down White until there was a breach. Added an hour+ to the day.

It was short, small waist deep wade.

Just one of the shortest, funnest canyons ever. Just to have fun, rapped in from a big boulder near the opening DC. Then the normal DC, RAP, wading that is short and then done. Super fun and Super short.

This canyon is holding some unavoidable nipple deep water(I'm 5'10) and a rattlesnake.
