royandersonWire Pass Mud Slog  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 30, 2014

I hiked this with my brother as a planned overnight down and back to the confluence. We went in at Wire Pass four days after a major flash flood and found many pools and constant, tiring mud. The first pool was the deepest, requiring carrying our packs on our heads. Due to the mud, our shoes were practically worthless so we chose not to go down the rockfall. The canyon was very interesting and the return to Wire Pass was much quicker than our initial exploration.

Only hiked maybe 1/2 mile in Buckskin, but I'll be back for the whole enchilada.

I've hiked Buckskin a couple of times, the first time, there was no water in Gulch, not even in the Cesspool, which was awesome. This most recent trip had a little more water, but it made it more exciting! Hiked from Wire Pass to White House in a little over 9 hours. Great hike!

Nice, easy slot canyon. Just a stroll down the canyon, only one little unavoidable pool when I did it (well almost unavoidable- a very difficult chimney or scramble will keep your feet dry). Very nice for a newbie.

The first time I did this in 2009, we backpacked from Wire Pass and camped one night in the canyon. Then hiked out White house.
It was beautiful overnight backpacking trip.

The 2nd time we did this in 2010, we also started from Wire Pass then camped 3 nights in the canyon. Then hiked out Lees Ferry. It was still end of April and we got bad weather forcast. Thus I carried wetsuits for just in case. (fortunately, I didn't have to use that)
I brought ceramic water filter that I had to clean up every time I pumped up because its so muddy. Must bring empty plastic bottle for keep the water until all the mud sank down at the camp spot.

Such a fun hike. 40 miles in 4 days. Bring plenty of water. There were some nice springs coming out of the cliffs but the last 18 miles the only water was the muddy Paria, which was pretty much impossible to filter.

Hiked upper Buckskin from the trail head down several miles, but not quite to Wire pass. We intended to go down Buckskin and then up Paria, but snow and thunder heads convinced us to take the more conservative route down the Paria to the confluence and then explore up Buckskin. We made it up almost to the middle exit. The rock fall is currently an easy 6' high scramble, under, then over some boulders.

Hiked down Wire Pass and then up Buckskin Gulch through the narrows. Fabulous scenery, great weather, and lots of wildlife. We saw Deer, jackrabbits, and very friendly lizards who weren't at all scared of us :)

Despite the T-storm season the weather was pretty dry. Tons of mud at the bottom of the canyon, but other than that it is one of the most spectacular canyon to visit. Our group of six people succesfully completed the 21 mile route in 2 days.

Bob SihlerJack's first slot canyon  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 2, 2005

My wife, son (Jack, then about six months), and I went in from Wire Pass, which was short but spectacular in its own right. A chockstone in one of the Wire Pass slots made for some tricky climbing with such a little kid, but that made it a little fun, too. I had long wanted to see Buckskin Gulch, and I was glad to get a nice little taste of it, especially without having to get wet.

Hiked with Mommy and Daddy. I am 10 1/2 months old, so Daddy carried me. We hiked in the evening from Wire Pass, past the confluence with Buckskin Gulch, a bit downstream and then up, and back to Wire Pass, about 4.5 miles total. This was my first slot canyon!
