Lucky Charms

Lucky Charms

Lake Powell Area
Technical Canyoneering

          So 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?

Warning:
          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!
