Canyons are inherently risky. Flash floods occur without notice on sunny days. Technical skills & surrounding topography knowledge required yet does not eliminate risk.
A dry canyon with scenic views, historic borax mines, and interesting rock formations. Located near the Artist's Drive area with exposures of many of the same colorful, mineral-laden soils. Seven rappels with the longest 150 feet.
Be smart! This is a less frequently-visited canyon, so always be prepared with enough gear to replace webbing and quick-links in case they are worn or missing. At minimum, you will need: helmet, harness, rappelling device and biner, and 2x150 ft ropes. Bolts are not allowed in Death Valley and most rappels in this canyon utilize cairn anchors, so know how to inspect, build, and weight them. As always, carry extra rope.
WARNING! Hiking and outdoor related sports can be dangerous. Be responsible and prepare for the trip. Study the area you are entering and plan accordingly. Dress for the current and unexpected weather changes. Take plenty of water. Never go alone. Make an itinerary with your plan(s), route(s), destination(s) and expected return time. Give your itinerary to trusted family and/or friends.
