We had camped near Diana’s throne which was a huge beautiful rock formation and definitely wanted to check out the slot canyon as well! So, I will say that figuring out where to park and start was a bit confusing. First of all, do not park right off the road in the paved area unless you want a long, hot (unnecessary) hike on a sandy road. The route we had downloaded was a loop and we were unsure which side would be best to start from. We drove pretty far in one section of the route and then assessed the entry. Once we got down into the canyon, we realized that we were pretty far from the actual slot portion and it made more sense to exit and drive to a different starting point (I’m only mentioning this because I kept my recording going during figuring out the best starting point). We drove back to the other end of the canyon and then made our descent. You’ll need some clearance to park at this section, but it wasn’t too bad - just a tad sandy!

Anyway, the descent into the canyon is steep and sandy (also pretty exposed & hot). We didn’t have to walk very far to get into the actual slot once we were at the bottom. It was a beautiful slot canyon with a couple of very minor obstacles/climbs/scrambles. There weren’t a ton of people and that made it even better! It was completely stunning in there and I was in awe! There was one section at the end that was too sheer for me to climb up, but James got up there - this was basically the end of the slot and not really worth getting up there if it’s difficult for you. (Ropes would help if you planned on doing it point to point or a loop!).

After finishing the slot, we went back the way we came in. The steep, sandy exit was not a good time; it was midday and very hot. I needed to stop in any shade I could find several times. If you’re heat sensitive like me, you may want to start earlier in the day for a more pleasant experience. Loved this little gem though!
