This canyon is just fantastic and may be one of my top 10 canyons. The approach hike is gorgeous. We used the pothole fork entrance to bypass the X section. We used potshots to do the rappels in the Pothole Fork. In the main canyon we rebuilt the first big rap anchor. The other rap anchor for the rap into the dark slot is good. The main canyon is great with dark slots and interesting downclimbing. The dark slot is now totally dry. The lower pretty slot has a bit of avoidable water. The hike out in the big canyon is just gorgeous. What a great day!

Sleepy Hollow is a great canyon. We bypassed the X section and entered using the Pothole Fork. Be careful choosing the correct side canyon for the Pothole Fork or you could end up in a very difficult canyon. We extended the anchor for the first rappel in Sleepy Hollow to make the pull easier. The chokestone rappel was easy. We added an anchor for the rappel into the dark slot, but it is also downclimable. The dark slot has cold waist deep water for a long distance so wetsuits are recommended. The stem out of the dark slot is moderately difficult. Definitely bring a headlamp. The rest of the canyon was easy.
