Stone Donkey Canyon-April 18 2008-Side trip on Day 2 of a 3 day backpack

Stone Donkey Canyon is an incredible and a very hidden slot tucked way away in the backcountry. I believe we (Brownwyn Adams, Kimberly Patterson, Rusty Northrup and I)did the first documented descent of the canyon from the top some ten years ago. Todd Martin had wanted to do the canyon for a while as well, but had been unable to find anyone interested in an overnighter. The Cathedral Rap, the tight narrows (so dark you need a headlamp in some sections) and downclimbing made the canyon a lot of fun and everyone was very impressed with the canyon. I had forgotten how good it was.
