Boundary Canyon - Zion National Park

Boundary Canyon

Zion National Park
Technical Canyoneering

          As with many canyons the route has changeable weather, questionable anchors, frequent bushwhacking, bewildering route-finding and the exit is extremely tedious. In short, this canyon is everything you could ever ask for.

          Boundary Canyon is a unique and charming technical slot canyon. The technical section of canyon begins at the boundary of Zion National Park and if you haven't figured it out yet that is how the canyon received its name. The canyon is not identified on any official map.

          Boundary Canyon is a refreshing, lush and green slot canyon that is worth the effort to visit. This canyon offers several route options that allows the canyon to be experienced in a single day or extended into a phenomenal two day adventure.
