Circle of Friends:
Lake Powell Area
I understand you feel like gobbling up two short slot canyons for breakfast. Well Lucky
Charms should get you going. This is more of a short and fun route than a big canyoneering
adventure. The route does visit several short sections of sandstone narrows and several
beautifully fluted dryfalls, but the charm is really in the squeezing, scrambling and
climbing involved in completing the circuit.
I have added this route for those
who might find a little spare time in their busy schedule. Perhaps before breakfast?
Charms is part of the "Circle of Friends"
program. Members of the "Circle of Friends"

I highly suggest that you
obtain a detailed description of this route before attempting it. Be extremely
careful that you are dropping into the correct drainage. At least one rescue has resulted from a navigational error concerning
canyons in this area. The area can be confusing and all the canyons look similar from the
top. You have been warned!
This route should require
approximately one hour to complete so take a big drink of water and leave everything else
in your vehicle. You will enjoy this route much more if you travel light. Those completing
this route should have the ability to lead a 5.6 to 5.7 climb. The route has several fun
sections of climbing with a fall potential of up to 25 feet. Beginners and youngsters will
require a competent leader and a 60' rope for handlines and belays.
Good map reading skills and an accurate route guide are essential. You must be certain you
are entering the intended drainage or you could encounter major difficulties. This canyon
has a minor flash flood danger. Check the local weather before committing. Lucky Charms is
rated 2A I using the Canyon Rating System.
The trailhead to Lucky
Charms is located next to a major highway in Southern Utah and is accessible to all
vehicles. There are several good primitive camping spots in the area.
