i'm in no way a pro, but our group never noticed this canyon as being over-bolted? perhaps they've been removed.

Beautiful canyon. Rap into the spring is fantastic.

Heard soo much talk about this canyon so I finally finally had to do it. It is a pretty canyon, but I had pretty high expectations going into it. It is definitely not my favorite Zion canyon or canyon on the Colorado plateau like it is for some. It is pretty and worth doing though. Like Scott said, it is way over bolted. From what I saw, not one of the bolts in the canyon is necessary. Oh well

Used as a descent route after climbing "Flagpole Mountain". A bit disappointed with this one, though the end was awesome. Wish there had been more water in the rest of the canyon.

My favorite day of that whole trip. Make sure you keep your focus on the slippery rock at the last rappel with the crowd watching.

With Steve Ramras, Dave Pitney, Josh Huffman,Frank(?) and 2 others.

Survived an epic in this one, when we got our ropes stuck and of course didn't bring ascenders. Climbing partner forgot his headlamp. I lowered him into the narrows with an emergency rope not knowing how far the last drop was in the dark. He had hypothermia and wasn't prepared for fall conditions. Came 2 minutes from spooning with him. Called off search and rescue upon arriving to the car.

More than eight years have passed since I did this canyon and it is still my all time favorite. We did it before the permit system was in place and it was my 1st experience rapping into the water. The rap into the Virgin River was hilarious because people on the ground started clapping...a little strange but memorable.

A number of shorter raps can easily be downclimbed, possibly the most fun part of this canyon besides the last rap. Not as pretty as some but definitely nice.

Loved every facet of the route: the hike up and out, the descent down in, the slots, crossing of the lake, the raps into the pools, the wet rap into the Virgin, and wading out to see strangers who did not have as cool of visit to Zion as us who have solved the mystery.

With Rick Kent and Seahorse. The loose crap on the downhill part of the approach really sucked, but everything else was great.

A very fun and scenic canyon which I thoroughly enjoyed. We must have hit it during a dry spell; didn't have a bit of water until Mystery Springs. After that it was a little chilly, but not too bad. Doing the final rap to the light of headlamps was fantastic.

This was my first canyoneering experience and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I must say that the hardest part for me was the climb down into the canyon through Death Gully. I hated that part! The rest was amazing!

Really Fun. I really enjoyed the dunk into Mystery Springs, cold and invigorating! Nothing overly difficult and a fun romp for a day.

Did Mystery Canyon during a WMC canyoneering trip. We did two other canyons in the same weekend.

Descended this puppy with a few folks sometime in summer 2005 or 2006. Very pretty.

Did it again with DB and Double-A in fall 2008. Also went through a portion of it while returning from the 1st ascent of Flagpole Mountain.
