WoW, this way the sweetest canyon of the day!
I didn't feel like doing the longer exposed loop hike, so I loaded up my 40ft, 100ft, & 200ft ropes into my pack
to set ropes at the three drops to ascend them on the way back though you could get away with 2 50ft & a 70ft rope. Thankfully I didn't to hike down the sandy wash very far before hitting the first set of drops. After some tricky down climbing, I got to the 35ft drop that was thankfully dry down below, followed shortly by a 60ft chute. The canyon is pretty sweet after this with amazingly tall glowing sandstone walls, many dry falls to bypass or climb down, and some cool slickrock sections before you hit the final drop of 25ft though you're anchor back a good 50ft. After that it's fairly easy walking down to the Colorado River where I grabbed some lunch and took a good nap in the warm sun along the soothing rapids.
When I was rested up, I returned up canyon and slowly acsend all three drops and hauled my ropes back to my car.
Definely a must do canyon if you're into canyoneering and in the area. My time logged excludes my nearly hour long nap...
