4 days straight of 4 difficult technical canyons... What a great canyon to finish our stay in Ouray with! The main issue with this canyon is the 4-6cfs flow making for some wild waterfall rappelling with some potentially nasty hydraulics underneath. Thru good rope techniques and rappelling we were able to stay safe, but a real hazard def exists. The handful of waterfall rappels are pretty sweet but this canyon is dominated by loads & loads of down climbing and rock hopping. In the lower section you hit this sweet spot with 3 sweet falls in a row and having to rappel right thru the infamous La Cappella Falls. Don't fight the flow, just let it glide you down the rope to the pool below. Kinna sad to finish this canyon and get dumped onto the highway knowing that's the last canyon of the trip. We did SO many great canyons that it's tough to rank them. Hitting the Ouray Hot Springs afterwards really helped my sore body loosen up.
Yea, canyoneering is an extreme sport... EXTREMELY dramatic!!! =p
