Circle of Friends:
Zion National Park
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.
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.

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.
