Such a beaUTiful canyon and still one of my favorites in Zion! :y: One the hike up, we took a sweet sidetrip up Angels Landing before pushing up the West Rim trail to Behunin Pass. :sweat: 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! :D 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. :y: 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. :GB:
