Total time required form trailhead to trailhead is 2 to 3 hours. A GPS is useful. Good map reading skills are essential. The Canyon is rated 3A II using the Canyon Rating System.
Part of the appeal of this canyon is that many of the drops offer the opportunity to downclimb instead of rappel. 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 anchors and teamwork is considered to be a major part of the adventure with this route.
The Trailhead is located near the town of Hanksville Utah and is accessible to carefully driven passenger cars. High clearance vehicles and four wheel drive will have no problem accessing the trailhead. A shuttle vehicle is not required for this route.
