Left Tucson at 0700 from the Trader Joe's at Oracle and Magee Rd; great launch spot, perfect for doing a little post hike shopping. Drove to Mammoth AZ for breakfast at Mi Pueblito. Highly recommended, clean , they use good ingredients and good coffee from a local roaster.

After breakfast we headed back onto the 77 past Winkelman to the trailhead. Geared up and headed down into the canyon. We were expecting water and were prepared with wet suits, however we never had to suit up. I did put on my neoprene socks (cold wet feet are to be avoided).

Belinda gave us all a lesson in rigging and knot tying, for some reason both myself and Mike's brains don't work well when it comes to these sorts of demonstrations. I am forever pausing tutorials on YouTube and have never been a fan of the red and black rope diagrams.
We both agree that YouTube is a fantastic resource and that you can learn almost anything on that site.

We all agreed this is an excellent canyon for beginners, and will most like return during the Summer rains and do it again.
Lunch/early dinner was at Las Michoacanas Restaurant in Mammoth; highly recommended.
