great route going in and out of the water with multiple, interesting, short obstacles. wetsuit was a godsend, but i should have worn wet shoes also. feet froze!

Hiked down the left fork creek (aka subway), and the water was high and dirty due to a flash flood the day before. Loved it.

abrennalinerushDon't ask me how many times I fell... it's slippery, OKAY?  Sucess!

So listen... I played in the waters of The Subway for an unnecessarily long time (like stupid silly long), and I didn't get cold, but I think I'm a freak of nature... if you're a normal human, you might want a wetsuit. This is probably one of the prettiest places I've ever been, and it's such a fun adventure. Rappelling! Swimming! Ambling! Find yourself a permit, a wetsuit, and a harness, and get yourself down there. It will not disappoint!

I have never felt water so cold as I did in the Subway. They aren't kidding when they give you warning! It wasn't even a cold day out! However, it was worth every bit of the cold. This was my second time down it and just as amazing as I remember. However don't take this just as a walk in the park because it is popular, it is cold and requires some work, make sure you have someone knowing with ropes.

So...the water was cold enough that it hurt certain body parts coming out. It was so worth it though. This is such an amazing place. I highly recommend it if you find the means.

Awesome canyon! I wanted to see what all the hype was about. Not going to lie, I came in with low expectations. The Subway exceeded those expectations. It is just such a pretty canyon and is a lot of fun! No other canyon i have down is like it and that makes it one of my favorites without a doubt. I used a wetsuit, but my three other friends who went with me didn't and they were alright. We brought a 30m rope..which was perfect! The hike out kind of sucked, but it was worth it!

If your skills permit, it is well worth visiting this section of the canyon top to bottom. Note: As of 9/30/11 the "bowling Ball" now has a large log jammed against the ball and requires swimming under and around the log.

Definitely did this one too early, but on the bright side it was easy to get a permit!

KenrickHigh water Flow, had to turn back
Date Climbed: May 20, 2010


It was low 50's when we made our trip, and the waterflow level was extremely high. The narrows were closed all week because of it. Got to the entrance before trying to climb around the first pothole before falling in and freezing my nuts off. Excited to do it in august when I won't get hypothermia and actually be able to go up it.

Date Climbed: Mar 30, 2010


Took the Left Fork TH bottom-up route. Didn't expect such a slog to the mouth of the canyon, but arrived none the less. Hiked up into the canyon to the waterfall and then turned around. Would love to see the rest of the canyon some day, but may save that for a tradition top-down trip!

junoiceclimberDid you see what I saw?  Sucess!


Top to bottom in flood stage levels with my dad. I was 28 and he was 53 and green. What a way to break into the sport, eh? We flirted with danger a bit, but missed all the beauty of summer.
