|Rating:||3C II (v3a4 II)|
|Raps:||3, Max ↕98ft|
A short but spectacular canyon in the vicinity of Vancouver.
The canyon is narrow and dark in most spots and all rappels are swimmers, so wetsuits are recommended even in summer.
Short and accessible with all rapells bolted with chained dual bolts. This canyon is perfect for beginners.
The first rappel is a good checkpoint for water flow. All the other rappels will be more difficult.
The approach, descent and exit are described in detail in the Beta Sites listed below.
NOTE: There's a recent extension of the route that adds a 4th rappel. The attached map shows the actual tracks for the new extended route.
Four rappels of up to 100ft, all of them with swimmer pools at the bottom. Other minor drops can be jumped.
- R1: 40ft
- R2: 70ft in two stages
- R3: 60ft
- R4: 100ft rappel in two stages
