A great short canyon with lots of beautiful walls
E Fork, and Lucky Charms loop too. With Rick and crew.
Main fork solo… yes, it is tight!
My 1st technical canyon descent. Lower main that can be walked up my favorite part. Very pretty !
I've never had such panic overcome me as I did descending the middle fork of Leprechaun Canyon. When they say this is narrow, they are not kidding for one second! I am 6'4 and 220 pounds. It got so tight that the only way I could get through was to chimney up. There were parts I was unsure how I could possibly find a way through, but with patience and help of friends I made it through. I have done many slot canyons, but for some reason this was the one that did me in mentally. 15 pounds lighter and I'll do it again! Time for the left and right forks! Here is a video to give you an idea of how tight.
All three forks of Leprechaun in one day. Not difficult to do at all when exiting at the junction.
Be careful because the brief descriptions provided here lack any detail. These are not difficult canyons, but are far from easy walk through either. Also, the easiest access (sans driving) is to walk up the slickrock from the highway.
11/5/09 - Descended the main fork to get back to camp after Shenanigans. Sweet!
4/23/10 - Left & Right forks. Not as good as the main fork but still good.
4/25/10 - Repeat of main fork. Classic.
4/20/13 - Repeat of main fork after Monkey Business.
Descended both the east and west fork on a beautiful spring day.
I went in from the bottom in the early 1990's and down from the top of both forks in 2003. The right fork was at the "freeze fest" at North Wash with Steve Ramras.
