Circle of Friends:
Zion National Park
Englestead Hollow remained hidden from canyoneers for years and has only recently become
popular. The deep slot was no secret to local residents. The entrance to the canyon
requires a Big Wall start and the canyon is descended using mostly natural anchors which
makes this route unsuitable for inexperienced canyoneers.
Hollow is part of the "Circle of Friends"
program. Members of the "Circle of Friends"
have access to more specific information, explicit route information, GPS waypoints,
trailhead location and detailed maps. If
