Two of us stuck around the Lee's Ferry area an extra day to get more bang for our $4/gallon of gas buck.
Such a sweet canyon and you hit those first narrows fairly soon from the highway with a couple down climbs and two cool rappels into some muddy pools... This canyon is super scenic as it slowly drops to the Colorado River. Some bypasses around drops and then one more mandatory short rappel before you hear the roar of the Badger Creek rapids.
It was cool to grab a snack alongside it and watch rafters getting thrown around in them. Hmm, think a packraft could handle that?
Last time I just ascended back up my ropes, but this time we mixed it up a bit and traversed upstream along the river to another exit canyon found by other canyoneers. It wasn't too bad at first as we walked along a flat bench but eventually it turned into a rock slope requiring loads and loads of climbing and angled rock hopping. The river was scenic for sure, but going back up the ropes would be much shorter and easier.
We eventually reach the break in the clifband above us and then once up on it we traverse back to the exit canyon. It was nice to be back up on the flat rim and walking back to our car with the sweet views of the surrounding Vermillion cliffs. Such a sweet canyon and def worth sticking around 6 hours for.
