The approach looks improbable from below, but proved to work just fine. Thanks to Luke Galyan for the excellent beta, we greatly appreciated the detailed approach photo. Below is Steph making her way across the most exposed part of the approach.
The rest of the route is very scenic; it is one of the best in the North Wash. The obstacles are challenging, and the rappels are rapid-fire. We loved this canyon and can't wait to do it again.
A superb little arch.
Some nice varnish.
For us this was some challenging stemming.
Looks like someone fell in the day before?
Steph also made it across, high and dry.
With some effort, we earned our "Dry Shoes and Rope" merit badge.
