Sweet Catalina canyon on the eastern side of the range that's best done when flowing! :D We hiked up the Romero trail past the popular pools and noted the upper narrows while hiking further up trail to drop in above them. The canyon was a little bushy at first but quickly turned technical with a handful of sweet waterfall rappels into cool pools and loads of traversing down canyon on that slick Catalina granite. The lower narrows also had some sweet slides before the narrows quickly ended and turned back into a normal open canyon. We dropped gear and quickly made our way back up to the trail and made the sunny hike back down the the TH. :sweat:
