Canyons are inherently risky. Flash floods occur without notice on sunny days. Technical skills & surrounding topography knowledge required yet does not eliminate risk.

Author Full Detail Guide
Overview
The long route may have rappels up to 170 ft, the shorter route (which we did) has rappels up to 100 feet. The 2nd to last rap into the narrows is only 100 ft despite online beta indicating it was 160ft. With a zipline it may be 160 ft of rope.

Can be done as a hike or a technical canyoneering trip.
