A short & super sweet technical literally under the highway. :D There's a few 10-20ft drop that are either tricky down climbs or easy rappels depending on your preference and availability of anchoring options. I rappelled one of them from an embedded old engine block, another had a handline tucked under the pile of rocks that made up the chockstone, and the other two I just dropped into the sand below. The 45ft drop was pretty sweet and I setup my 100ft rope since that's much safer than doing that as a handline. :o With so much red sandstone canyons in the area, it was nice to hop in a white crumbly Entrada Sandstone canyon. Once the canyon opens up, I veered left and scrambled up the cliffs and hiked cross country back to the highway while trying not to destroy too much cryptobiotic soil by walking in washed whenever possible. ;)
