T.A. & I took off from the top at about 3pm & expected to come out after dark. 3-hours later we were grabbing our seats on the shuttle. Awesome trip and I would do it again.

My first canyoneering experience and what a blast! Via Birch Hallow with Bianka, Mason, Anthony, Theresa, Jessica, and Sephira. Gorgeous canyon with fun obstacles and not too cold of water. I was completely blown away by the giant chockstone at the Guillotine and how well shoes stuck to the sandstone even when covered with slime.

Did this canyon after doing Englestead Hollow. I was not too gung ho on it at first, but after doing the length of the canyon, I quickly changed my mind. Its a gorgeous canyon and the blue water from the spring is incredibly pretty. The narrow section is awesome and it is just amazing how deeply incut this canyon is into the rock. 5 stars for sure

Entered Orderville via Birch Hallow. Very scenic especially in the sections with water (creek). The canyon walls are amazingly high. Where Orderville enters The Narrows is also amazingly beautiful.

Did in conjunction with Birch Hollow. Birch has some nice raps. Orderville dry until half way down, some nice small downclimbs. Pretty canyon, especially at the fallen rock section.

Incredible adventure. Dropped our packs during a through hike of the narrows. Amazing beauty. Had a few pools to swim across, up some waterfalls, climbing log jams... would like to go again sometime.

FangClimbing UP Orderville Canyon in Zion  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 25, 2009

I was able to hike and climb all the way up Orderville Canyon with no technical gear. Starting from the bus, hiking up the Virgin, and taking the first real tributary on the right you find Orderville. There are lots of clever obsticals along the way, becoming porgressively more difficult until they begin to feel all but unpassable.

There were two deep pools (had to swim and could not touch bottom) with climbs up small water falls. At the second there is a large choke stone completely filling the narrows with a second one the size of a RV stuck about 25' directly above the first. This is the MOST DIFFICULT obsticle. I am a good climber (former climbing guide), and I made it up on my third attempt. After two failed atempts to the right (where it is dry) I had to swim to the left and climb the falls - it was a short, but frightening ascdent for me.

Once at the top I found there are rappel hangers on the left when going downstream. I hiked most of the rest of the way to the Orderville spring, had lunch and returned back the same way. I followed a group of hikers going down and used their rope to rap down off the above described obsticele.

Good luck!

Wow, I didn't know there were pages for slot canyons. Did this with two amigos way back when. We started in Zion at the Narrows and hiked up Orderville through all the obstacles to the massive and tremendous log jam. An experience I still remember vividly.

Took us almost 9 hours from the top - we did take it easy and enjoyed every bit of it. Nice cold refreshing swims at the final part before the confluence with narrows. Next time will do it just from the bottom...

Unseasonably cold, fairly high water. I chose not to wear a wetsuit -- big mistake. I had a 0.5 mm surfer's shortsleeve shirt, whose only virtue was in being black. The NPS later told us the water was 45F. Coming back through the Narrows, with several swims, was utter agony.

But yes, it was beautiful.

We went UP canyon as far as we could, past the first falls, and then into a jumbled group of boulders where the timid in the group overpowered the bold, and we turned around. Should do it all as is described here.

I did Orderville Canyon with the WMC. It ended up taking all day getting through the obstacles with our large group. The water was pretty cold and we didn’t have wetsuits. There were trees and other debris in all of the pools from a recent storm. It was a fun and memorable hike.
