Technical Canyoneering

          Warm Springs Loop is a fun moderate route for experienced canyoneers located on Lake Powell. The canyon is not accessible from the lake and must be reached by four wheel drive.

          The name Warm Springs was given to the canyon by early prospectors. Before Lake Powell was filled there was a small year round stream that flowed out of the bottom of the canyon into the Colorado River.

          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 is moderately difficult in this canyon.
