My Wish List-Canyons

This is my wish list of the top slot canyons I hope to canyoneer within my lifetime. All these are hopefully in reach and I hope to get as many as I can, though my family (wife+kids) are my #1 responsibility and their needs come first.

Canyons were selected for various reasons. Some are on the list simply because they are beautiful, some are on the list because they would be a great challenge for me, some are on the list because they are easy enough that I can climb with my wife and kids, some are on the list for their history, some are on the list just for the heck of it. Some are well known and some are very little known, so there are a variety of canyons that I want to do.

Note: This list only includes the wish list since this page was created. Previously, I have already completed many canyons which were on old wish list, thus there is an absence of canyons listed in my favorite areas (since I've already completed them).

The Canyon List was created on September 4 2012, and expanded a few times since then.

When I complete each of the canyons on this list, it will be noted with a date.

My Other Wish List

Non-Summit Crags and Climbs

Hikes (mostly long distance)

Other

1-50

Note: Many beta-less/unknown canyons as well.
