Ok, that was a bit scary. How old do I need to be to quit searching out such business? The snow shoe return through fresh snow with a 300' rope will kick your ass. Courtney, I need to do this canyon in season, never done it.

Just saw this. What did I miss, Dow? Sounds like you and Zach were scared off by some sketchy Zion ice.

Oh yes, Zicicle. I know a guy who's climbed it before, and a couple who thought about climbing it, took a look at it, and turned back. The canyon itself is lame. Cool entry rappel but uninteresting after that, except for a pretty, fluted rappel midway through.

oh we climbed it (now you know three people who climbed it), just scary dude....we had no professional photographer with us...so these Climbing Mag photos will be the best out there....I will add the route page though...Zach said he thought the canyon route was decent....figured you had been down it.
