amAZingly beautiful canyon and easily the best in the Supes! :y:

You can walk the SRP road in past the first warning sign, it's only when you pass the 2nd sign where you'll have trespassing issues though that can change in the future... ](*,) The approach drainage is actually just to the right of the 2nd sign. ;) We again took the exposed sheep route on the way up the ridge since it's SO scenic, challenging and direct. :sweat: It has a few exposed sections and class 3 climbs. Once up on the mesa, we veered up canyon for a easy place to climb down into the upper canyon. The upper section if full of rock hopping & bush whacking but you hit the first rappel soon enough. In a canyon as technical as this one with 12-15 rappels, it's redundant and should be unnecessary to report them all for the experienced canyoneer. :whistle: Most are short in the 20-60ft range but there's a few longer 80-120ft drops in the middle with the final one being that overhung 120ft drop to the Punchbowl itself. There's a sweet 100-120ft drop in the middle but the bolt is back like 40ft so bring at least a 150ft rope as your longest rope. When you rappel down to the Punchbowl you're actually a quarter mile past the 2nd sign and technically trespassing at that point when you hop back on the road, so don't say I didn't warn ya... :whistle:

Ironic that this is triplog 911. :sl:
