Canyons are inherently risky. Flash floods occur without notice on sunny days. Technical skills & surrounding topography knowledge required yet does not eliminate risk.
This canyon could be divided into three "sections": The upper technical section, the middle boulder-hopping section, and the lower technical section. Between the upper and middle sections, there are a couple spots where you can eject or drop in - useful in case of time constraints, injury, etc. The upper section passes through the narrow slot of upper Ice Cube and is quite scenic with sinuous rappels through the watercourse. The middle section consists of rock-hopping and hiking in the wash, and can be quite hot. The lower section is a long series of rappels as views of the valley open up, culminating in a 190 foot rappel from a narrow crack to the valley floor.
