This is a nice canyon and seemed like a barren place in winter. I went as far as the chockstone waterfall. It had snowed a week before in Moab. The water was cold but not too deep. Some of the creek crossings required walking over fragile ice bridges which were fun to cross.
but not very many technical spots, even with the "technical" upper section. Did it solo without any trouble, though going cross country you wonder if you're in the right place. Fun and pretty beginner canyon from the bottom only.
Scott...you da man! What a great hike and a wonderful day...yes the rap down the waterfall was a little tricky but all-in-all a great day and a hike I and my wife will definitely do again.
Hiked this with a friend. Amazed that I didn't do it sooner--it's close to Moab and it's beautiful! Walked in the creek itself most of the way. Unexpected sinkholes made for spontaneous humor. We hiked to the neat, large waterfall and back.
Many times from the bottom, and once from the top.
