Such a beaUTiful canyon and still one of my favorites in Zion!
One the hike up, we took a sweet sidetrip up Angels Landing before pushing up the West Rim trail to Behunin Pass.
The upper canyon has the usual amount of sand, bushwhacking, and pool bypassing before reaching the initial 4-stage rappel sequence. So amazing to do these scenic drops one after another down the side of the 300ft angled cliff!
Once at the bottom, it was a sandy walk until hitting a short rappel followed by much more sand and some pools to practice our stemming on. Another short rappel bypassing a deep pool puts us into the main canyon proper before heading towards the lower narrows and final rappel sequence. It starts with a double short drop rappel into some waist-high pools, traverse around the corner for a 3-drop 150ft rappel with an ever tricky rope pull, and then ends with a flipping amazing 160ft mostly free hanging scenic rappel.
Took another sidetrip to check out the 300ft falls of Heaps canyon. I definitely would not mind doing this canyon at least once a year.
