Went down Baptist Draw and up Chute with a group of 18 chics! Quite a bit of water; wore wetsuits. Beautiful canyon despite its lack of difficulties!

Started at Cowboy camp and ran canyons and washes to start of Baptiste. Great little canyon. Rapped off into Chute and exited near the Fault back to the car.

Great route info found here and a wonderful hike through a great, straight forward, slot that is varied and interesting throughout. Definitely worth the effort.

Did this one with Jeff & Andy. What a fun day. I actually have no clue what we really did. It sounded like we were originally in Baptist Draw but maybe got off route early on? There was no 80' rap to be seen. Our first rap was approx 20' and maybe the 2nd was a little longer. Both raps were pretty close together. NOTHING was close to 80'. Maybe 40' at best on our 3rd rap. I think we ended up in Chute. After a while the narrows got pretty steep. The rock was clean. No place to build an anchor without a bolt kit. We made it to this slide like formation that dumped out into a pool. Since we were realy not sure exactly where we were I kept making mental notes on possible excape routes along the way. After being in the canyon for about 4-5 hours and basically getting to what I saw as the point of no return and our dead end, we climbed out of the canyon and hitched a ride back to the car after hiking for over 4 hours, navigating across country. It is soooo easy to get turned around in that desert. What an awesome time. Next time I won't lose the beta on the route. oopsie. SUPER gorgeous canyon. I think we turned this into a 12 hour day, most of which we spend wandering around, hoping to spot something that looked like Teepee or a road.

Bad weather thwarted previous plans, so my brother Richard joined me for a loop in this beautiful canyon. We didn’t start until late afternoon and didn’t bring a watch in the canyon, so we really hoofed it through fast. We had to rap once, but could down or upclimb everything else without a rope. Unfortunately we had to pack some trash out of Baptist, but the rest of the loop was good. It only took us 2 ½ hours; all non-stop except for at the top of the rap to harness up.

PS, someone placed some extremely poor and dangerous bolts at the big drop. Don't use them and someone should take a wrench and pull them out (they are just cheap hardware bolts that should pull easily with a wrench).
