Cable Canyon is a technical canyoneering adventure. The technical portion of the canyon consists of wading, swimming, rappelling, downclimbing, pothole thrashing and plenty of fun. Total time required for a round trip is 7 1/2 to 8 1/2 hours.
This route is suggested for experienced canyoneers only. The route contains a couple of keeper potholes, which require a variety of techniques to escape. Cable Canyon is rated 4B III using the Canyon Rating System. A GPS is very useful. Good map reading skills are essential. Navigation for this route is moderate.
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.
