I was down in Tucson with some friends and we hit this technical loop that involved a couple rappels in both of the technical sections of each canyon. In both canyons, the technical sections also started off with a drop into a swimmer that could be bypassed but then the following two rappels were relatively dry. Once past the swimmer, he hit the 8ft & 30ft drops in La Milagrosa Canyon, we scrambled up to the ridge on the left and then followed the ridge back to the trail until it dropped into Agua Caliente Canyon. From there we followed that canyon downstream, bypassed the swimmers, rapped down the 15ft & 20ft drops, and then rock hopped down canyon until it opened up and then hopped back on the trail back to the car. Two short & sweet canyons that are worth checking out without being too terribly technical. :D
