I had difficulty finding the bypass routes. I burned a bunch of time and was mentally exhausted before I ever actually entered the canyon. Kelsey's bypass map is inaccurate. With the GPS route here hopefully you will not have the same difficulty.

The canyon turned out to be quite wonderful. The lower part is especially nice and you could hike it in reverse until you reach an obstacle you don't want to deal with. Highly recommended fun!
