Trachyotomy is an eccentric technical canyoneering adventure. Trachyotomy is rated 3B R III using the Canyon Rating System. This is a physical canyon requiring downclimbing, wading, swimming, climbing, stemming and chimneying. Bring as small and light of pack as possible. Trachyotomy requires complete technical gear. 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.
Four wheel drive vehicles will have no problem accessing this trailhead. High clearance vehicles should be able to reach this trailhead in normal conditions.
