Dirty Devil
Technical Canyoneering

          Lost Angel/Dirty Devil, sounds like the lyrics to an 80's heavy metal song. This canyon is a nice addition to the other slot canyons in the Angel area along the Dirty Devil.

General Information:
Lost Angel is a technical canyoneering route that requires complete technical gear. This canyon is accessible year round unless there is snow on the ground. Lost Angel is rated 3A II using the Canyon Rating System. A GPS is useful. Good map reading skills are essential.

          There are no bolted anchors in this canyon, let's preserve this feature. Many canyoneers before you have descended this canyon without placing bolts, so please play fair. You might need to locate and construct natural anchors, which should be considered part of the game. Instead of placing bolts might I suggest teamwork and partner assisted techniques. The problem solving involved with using natural anchor and teamwork is considered to be a major part of the adventure with this route.
