I've wanted to do Avocado, but I haven't wanted to do the drive. Decided to descend Sundance, hike up WCC for a couple miles to the Tramway trail, then hike cross country and descend Avocado. From the Avocado hike about a mile upstream to the point trail. Great day!

This was the last canyon of our three day tour de Central Arizona. 5 of us took on Sundance Canyon. Each time I do the canyon it seems easier and easier. We did it with two rappels. I still pause by the wreath to pay my respects to the Boy Scout. The last rappel was very amazing as always. Worth the trip!

First time through Sundance and loved it!! Water was pretty cold and that last rap definitely has a high clench factor. :lol:

1st Canyon on the 1st Day of the recent Mogollon Rim Trip...

My Friend from Colorado arrived a couple of hours after I did and after setting up Camp, we were off...I had not seen this Canyon since last Year, but I knew that last Year's Conditions would be hard to beat, as the Canyon was flowing very nicely with Waterfalls at that Time...The Chances of catching it like that again were going to be pretty slim, but this Trip would be good because I would be Descending it differently this Time. Most of the Waterfalls from last Year would be Downclimbable this Time around, where before, we actually had to Rappel them...I was also looking forward to the Big Drop, which I hadn't done so well the Year before... :y:

And I knew it would be Fun to see my Friend Experience this Canyon for the 1st Time...She's an Enthusiastic Photographer like me, so I knew she would really enjoy it... :D

Descent went like Clockwork and I really did the Big Drop well, and got to enjoy it much more this Time around... :y: Exited the Ampitheatre into WCC and made fairly quick Work of the Exit as well. Glad I got to see this Canyon again and was Happy to see that my Friend was really enjoying it as well...I knew by the End of that Canyon that she felt that it was worth the Drive and more...And we were just getting started.... :D

After a leisurely lunch in camp we headed out to do Sundance. During lunch we saw another group head out so we purposely waited an hour to give them plenty of time to clear out. During lunch, Kevin and Kim showed up so we had a party of 5 to go down Sundance. It was their first time in WCC.

We did the first part of the canyon with flying colors since we didn't need to rappel. We paused briefly to suit up. I paused again to give a moment of silence to the boyscout. Then suddenly we were caught up with the other group. They were rappelling something that we now felt comfortable doing as a friction controlled slide. After we did the slide and swim, we hung out for about an hour or so waiting our turn to do the final two rappels. We were happy to be wearing our wetsuits!

The wait was worth it. Soon it was our turn. I went down the first drop and then dropped the rope for the first party and set up ours. Then I was off! I love this rappel, however, I gave myself too much friction by popping a horn on my rappel device. The rope drag gave me considerable friction for the first half of the rappel. Even so, it was a blast because I was able to look down and all around! Finally, I was able to get up to normal speed! At the bottom one of the guys from the other party mentioned my rappel was the smoothest he'd seen that day. Yay for me! Too bad he didn't stick around to see the stellar performance of all of the rest of our group! There is something to be said to be hanging out with a solid crew of canyoneers!

A little over a Year Ago, Ken was generous and patient enough to offer to take me down Bear Canyon, a Technical Canyon, even though I had never done anything like that before in my Life...If that wasn't enough to get me hooked (and it was), we then bypassed the Exit and Scott, Mike and himself took me over to a Natural Amphitheatre, where the bottom of the last 180 Foot Rappel of Sundance Canyon is located...Looking up at that Rappel, a Sheer Cliff, where the last 100 Feet is Free Hanging, was an incredible Sight. I knew that someday, I was going to find a way, with a little more experience under my Belt, to see this Place from the Top and experience it fully...We tried several times this Summer to plan this Canyon but some obstacle or snafu always got in the way...Looking back now, I think Fate and Mother Nature teamed up on this one and wanted us to wait until the Canyon was at it's finest, so she could show us everything she had....

It was finally time and we were going to do this...Ken kept saying it's a short Canyon and there will be no Rush and we can take our Time to get through this one...It was Music to my Ears... :y: I was able to fully relax and not have to worry about keeping up and this Canyon was begging to be Photographed too, so it was Perfect...As we descended down towards the Canyon, we came to an Overhang where you could look down...There was Water there and it was Flowing...Ken has done this Canyon several times already and it was enough to make him Comment and get Excited...When Ken gets visibly excited about a Canyon that he's already done, you know it's going to be even more Special than normal... :DANCE:

Down at the Bottom, we bypassed a couple of spots initially before committing fully to the Water...The Water was flowing at a nice Rate and was mostly Clear although it was a Rust Color probably from the Mineral Content...Some of the Pools were still Silty, but the Water was Clean, Clear, and Fresh...It was slightly Cold, but not bad at all...I had brought my Wetsuit, but opted not to use it although in hindsight that was a Mistake, because even though the Water itself wasn't bad, being Wet in the Air Temperature sent you to shivering soon enough if you weren't moving... :sweat:

There was "Green" as far as the Eye could see and Waterfalls around every Corner...As the Walls tightened up, the Lichen and Ferns that covered the Rocks, Soils and Crannies were joined by the Moss...The Walls and Rocks were covered in Vibrant Green Moss so thick and swollen with Water that it felt like an Expensive Carpet with a Memory Foam Backing...We were literally descending into the Garden of Eden...There was so much Water in the Canyon, there were still small Falls coming down the Walls from the Top and the Rocks were literally oozing Water...The Place was completely saturated and the Plants and Moss above you were shedding Water, making you feel like you were being Rained on, even though the Skies were Blue above...It was nothing short of Magical... 8)

We hiked, scrambled, downclimbed, waded, swam, rappelled, and even jumped down this Canyon...Some of the Downclimbs were more interesting as they were now Waterfalls with Slick Rock and Moss and we opted to Rappel or Handline a couple of them for that reason...All of the Potholes were overflowing with Water and were deeper than Normal and because of the Waterfalls going into them, Downclimbing would have been more difficult, so we just jumped in... :GB: I never touched bottom on either Jump and the Potholes were easy to exit with the "Beached Whale" technique... :lol:

And then, we were there...The Top of the Big Rappel...And it was a Sight to behold...I should've taken a Photo there, but everyone was cold, including me, so it was time to go...There were only 3 of us and I had volunteered to go first so we could do this one Right and leave Ken to be last...There was Water going over the Edge so it made it even more interesting, knowing that you were actually going to be doing this with a light Waterfall pounding you a little from the Top...I added extra Friction and it was a Physical Fight to even move down the first 80 feet of Wall, but then...I was over the last Edge and hanging...I have done a few Free Hangs before, but never this long and it was much more Physically demanding than I thought it would be...I had thought about trying to tie off and get some Photos but when it actually came down to it, there was no way I was going to do that on this one... :sweat: And then, after a Serious Adrenalin Rush, I was down and into the shallow Pool at the bottom...What an Amazing Feeling.... :y:

Melanie came down next with me belaying her at the bottom and then she belayed Ken...Ken got down and we pulled the Rope...Melanie took off to find some Sun, but Ken and I hung back as the Party of Two behind us was having some Trouble...They had thrown their Rope, but it didn't make the bottom, instead, it was a wadded mess about halfway down...We tried to signal them not to come down and to pull it back up, but with the Water, they couldn't hear us and one of them started down...He finally could hear us and realized the problem and stopped to fix it, but he ended up having to stop 3 times to finally get the Rope fixed and to the bottom...It was interesting and a little harrowing to watch...I actually Videotaped it and will be sending it to him so he can see how it looked to us.... :sweat: They both made it down and we all headed for some much needed Sun...

West Clear Creek was flowing like I've never seen before...It wasn't Clear, it was a silty brown, and moving pretty high and fast...most of the Trail along the Creek to the Exit was completely underwater....We got to the Trail going up and started the Hike out...Ken and Melanie could smell the Beer of course, so they went ahead and I got there when I got there... :sweat: And then, it was done...We hung around for a bit, socializing with the other Canyoneers that had finished, including the two behind us, and then we were on our way home...

I could take a Thousand Photos of this Canyon and write a Book about what I saw, but it still wouldn't do it Justice...I have descended a few Canyons now and they were all Beautiful in their own Way and I Loved them all, but this one, on this Day, was my Favorite Descent, Hands Down...I will do this Canyon again, but the chances of seeing it like this are probably slim unless Fate decides to Smile on me once again...To do this Canyon the way we did it, with the way it was, was absolutely Priceless...I will remember them all, but this one will always be Centerstage for me...

Ken, you've Rocked my World and you have opened it up in a way that I thought I would only Dream about, and for that, you will always have my deepest Thanks and Gratitude...Thank you for being such a good Friend and I look forward to many more Descents with you.... : app :

Four of us did a speed attempt on Sundance our last morning. It was nice to do a canyon and still get home by 5 PM with our 4-5 hour drive.

We solidly outperformed ourselves on this canyon too! We went from over 7 hours to just a bit over 4! Maybe we had less fun since we weren't using the pool float, but it was still exciting.

The wreath was still in place. I was glad to know its significance already.

We did less raps this year and didn't use the pool float at all. Having wetsuits meant we didn't need to use extraordinary measures to try to stay dry.

We set up one of the slides with some webbing on a meat anchor (Josh) to slow our descent and plunge. There was a shelf right at the bottom of the drop so you didn't want to hit it too hard. Then on another drop we just slid using friction techniques. Carole had the darnest time launching herself off the slide but finally took the plunge. Dunking yourself in fetid water isn't always something you rush into! At the other side of the pool you do a beached whale move to get out.

Suddenly we were at the keeper, I got the pecker ready and rapped down. There was a slick log propped up and I was able to work my way up it and get onto the saddle. I positioned the pecker with a hand line to help the others. Then I tossed my pack into the next almost dry pothole and downclimbed to the top of the anchor for the big drop. One of the guys who wasn't part of our normal group removed the hand line thinking it was unnecessary and then some of the girls needed help. The team helped each other.

The big rappel was amazing as usual. Joel went first and gave a fireman's for everyone. I was down second and took lots of pictures.

It's pretty amazing to do both Bear and Sundance in one day! Go team!

Found a wreath of plastic flowers shortly after dropping in, the plastic roses are falling off and starting to wash into the canyon. Should have packed it out but I guess I'd rather complain instead.

As usual the water was very cold, still chilly in a 3mm.

Finally got to do this canyon again this season! West Clear Creek area has been closed because of the Egypt forest fire. Canyon has changed a little bit since our last trip in the summer - a lot more downed trees and debris (maybe because of monsoons?). We were able to slide into two of the pools and did the whole canyon with only 3 rappels. The two keeper potholes were full and easy to get out of. The water was VERY chilly throughout the canyon. We had shorty wet suits that were not quite enough to stave off shivering.

The last 180' rappel was fantastic but we did not linger long because of how cold we all were. We brought gear to camp and made use of an awesome campsite west (left) of the last rappel. This site had a nice stone hearth, stone table, and stone chairs that someone spent a lot of time fashioning out of found materials. The site is about 10 feet above the river. We stayed the night (very cold!) and hiked out the next morning. The leaves were gorgeous!

A great fall adventure. Chilly but fun!

2nd time down Sundance.
Alzheimers must be setting in.
I incorrectly remembered the last rap as 150ft.

Also important for near future canyoneers:
we discovered a rotting deer carcass about two pools before the last rap.
I managed to manuever it out of the flow of water to the side using a small log.
I would wait at least a few good rains to flush out the rest.
We managed to get past the following pools by careful climbing and two tyrolean traverses, only getting wet to the waist. You really don't want to get your face in that Venison Soup!

So, the last rap has my ropes.
We had descended the purple line, planning to pull the green and yellow ropes but came up short. I tried to prussik back up the purple line but with the rope being wet and very spongey it just wasn't happening any time soon. It's not a high value rope,
I'd retired it from climbing and was using it as a dedicated rap line.
If anyone finds these ropes I would be happy to send you $20 for your trouble plus postage to return it to me.

thanks, be safe!
-Mark

What a beautiful canyon!

Started late and did the last rappel in the dark (not recommended!). Pothole was in semi-keeper mode. An old branch gave us something to climb out of it on. Water was cold and stagnant throughout the canyon.

Give yourself plenty of time to do this canyon. The hike out is longer than you'd think. Once you get to the bottom of the 180' rappel, you have to cross the river to the left multiple times and find your way out up the drainage which is very steep. After a long day in Sundance Canyon, this trail is pretty tough.
